Running through these studies of specific art works and installations is a theoretical exploration of the role of play, conceived as a complex creative, philosophical and psychic process which has informed the work of many artists working with the theme of the house, and which can be seen to echo some of the critical and playful concerns of earlier art movements such as Fluxus and Arte Povera.

Drawing on various theories of play, including those of Huizinga, Winnicott, among others, Perry argues for the recurrence of humorous, ironic, critical and playful strategies in works which engage with the apparently banal, everyday theme of the home. Policies Disclaimer. Skip to content.
louicompsentoftboola.tk Google Scholar: Look up in Google Scholar Abstract This is the first monograph to explore the ubiquity of the imagery of the house in recent and contemporary art, and its rich cultural, aesthetic and interdisciplinary associations. Look up in Google Scholar. The novel takes place largely within the confines of a Buenos Aires apartment building still under construction. The building, still without doors, flooring or even windows, is ostensibly empty, yet the family of a Chilean immigrant worker is squatting there—along with a company of phantoms who typically appear during siesta, naked, and covered in dust.
The ghosts are all male. Are they immigrant workers who died on the job? The date is December 31st.

In fact, Ghosts , in its ebulliently playful, frequently funny way, is somewhat obsessive in its cataloging of the distinctions between the Chilean and Argentine characters and mores. Actually the living squatters seem perfectly at ease with the daily apparitions of the dead squatters. Maybe this is a Chilean thing?
But Ghosts is also a kind of jazzy essay, which performs its jig with one foot in vividly detailed, more or less realistic people, places and behaviour, and unfettered, often dazzling abstraction. The in-between state of a partially finished building evokes the purgatorial or transitory.
