‘Hänsel & Gretel’s Arenas’

 

Un proyecto de Andrés Jaque / Oficina de Innovación Política

 

‘Hänsel & Gretel’s Arenas’ is the Andrés Jaque’s contribution to the dialogue, ‘La Terraza de Hänsel y Gretel’, between Jaque and artist Federico Herrero, curated, as part of the program ‘En Casa’, by Luisa Fuentes at La Casa Encendida.

 

Andrés Jaque and the Office for Political Innovation have worked in the last years re-enunciating the way home, family and house get architecturally articulated as a social and material reality. Works like TUPPER HOME (Madrid), Sweet Parliament Home (Gwangju), IKEA Disobedients (MoMA, New York), Fray Foam Home (Vennice Biennale) or House in Never Never land (Ibiza) have provide opportunities to address from different perspectives the same conjunction.
‘Hänsel & Gretel’s Arenas’ is a temporary pavilion to hold a number of discussions in which children and adults, with the assistance of marionettes, will debate the ethics contained in the tale ‘Hänsel & Gretel’. It is constructed in the roof of La Casa Encendida, the most active cultural center in Madrid.
The structured is composed by more than 6.000 hanging decorative objects and toys. A cloud of colorful light plastic elements, all of them designed originally to awake desires in people of different ages, and massively produced by delocated industrial networks. The construction offers a post-marketing version of the witch’s children trap of ginger cookies.
