‘A home for my son’

By  Henny Burnett 2023
‘A home for my son’ is a new thread to my work which deals with concepts of belonging, displacement, environment and inheritance. To date I have cast houses in a range of materials that include sustainable and temporary materials such as earth, plant roots and mycelium. I’m beginning to answer questions about the materials I use and their environmental impact. I like to think these houses are transient: the binding plant roots will die, the earth will crumble. The shape of the cast houses echoes Monopoly board pieces, once wood and then plastic, along with many ideas about profits, gambling, and winners and losers. The four houses are: Mycelium house, Root house, Earth house and Home Sweet Home.
