Homeland, the safe home of Pontus Willfors

Homeland - Il rifugio sicuro di Pontus Willfors | Collater.al

The meaning of the word “Home”, and the name of the objects that make it up, is one of the first things that we’re taught.

The Swedish artist Pontus Willfors, for his exhibition “Homeland” on display at Ed Cella Art & Architecture Gallery in the City of Culver, examines how the natural materials, for the human need, becomes a product.

By manipulating the wood, the protagonist of his entire work, he re-created everyday use objects investing them with a grotesque kind of beauty.

Grotesque as the idea of representing, with the same objects and the same idea of home, our psyche.
