The common ground

Private house, Madrid

Art and the inhabited space 
by Paul Smith-Schmidt

Breaking down the boundaries between public and private sphere, the Common Ground turns the interior of a home into a site for public scrutiny. Here art is merged within the everyday domestic space as a means to push the visitors to engage both physically and psychologically with the unfamiliar location they are confronted by, and to raise a possible questioning in regards to the context in which art is viewed nowadays. Throughout the visit, the public will have access to each room of the house, which will consequently differ from one another in relation to ambiance and space, hence becoming a location in which art is lived rather than simply viewed.
