Mixed media installation, 8'x9x9', 2013// Flip-House (Queens) was specially designed for the exhibition Queens International 2013, in collaboration with Mario Mohan. The house was also home of the project Smuggle Tactics by the Bulgarian Collaborative*. Flip-House(Queens) was constructed out of materials collected from the museum’s renovation site and thus became its extension reaching out into the neighborhood. The house was designed as a semi-mobile structure with removable parts that traveled outside of the museum. People were invited to look, walk or sit inside, interact with the collections on its walls, and thus bring life to it. Workshops and activities offered by the Bulgarian Collaborative facilitated that interaction. The walls of Flip-House were flipped inside out to accumulate the artifacts and records of the ongoing exchange.* Based on the natural connections and common experience of immigration, the Bulgarian Collaborative developed an open platform for collaboration with artists, art visitors, and cultural producers internationally. Rather than dwelling on ethnic differences, our projects are aimed at building connections with other communities through participation in an art exchange.More about the project and all participants here: http://www.danielakostova.com/sites/default/files/Queens%20Museum:BC.pdf
