The House of dreams... (Part II)

01/03/18 - The installation Eureka, on the lower floor of C24 Gallery, represents the facade of a 17th century house in Flanders. Built in 3 dimensions and 10 mts long, the piece was placed on the floor and although we can only see its upper section, we can fully appreciate the illusion Tolle wanted to create: how the reflection of water influences the bricks of the house and the sparkles blend with the architecture. It's a synergy between solid and liquid: a stable and long standing structure becomes temporary and erratic.

Materials: stylofoam, urethane, acrylic paint / Measures: 1097,3 x 457,2 cm
To attract collectors who, for spacing reasons can't buy the artwork, a smaller version is also on display. Both works required the aid of digital technology to recreate the reflections that the movement of water create on the surface of the facade.

Both installations by Brian Tolle enclose the power and energy of History through meticulous investigation. According to Melissa Ragona, for Levitton, the artist visited Long Island not only to study the housing project but to take exact measures of the doors and windows in the houses. The impeccable attention paid to these details is evident. The aim, however, was to show how this public housing plans were made for the typical happy American family, while hiding the poverty and discrimination towards other members of society.
