matter out of place

In 'matter out of place' the traditional pigeon shed is intentionally over aestheticized, exposing a traditional and enclosed space to the public. The original objects are being reduced to clean and dead artefacts, as they are transformed in ceramic and wrapped with white canvas. Filth and rest materials are a fundamental part of our common environment and are defined by the Anthropologist Mary Douglas as 'every matter out of place or order'.
