Showing the room and telling someone


Contributor: Jonathan De Maeyer


What makes a house a home?


Showing the room and telling someone is a personal visual essay by Jonathan De Maeyer.  While following seasonal workers in the field and on their journey back home, he asks them questions about what it means to be so far away from home, and how they relate to an unfamiliar landscape that can eventually feel more and more familiar.

In this work, domesticity and  the memory of it will be opposite to each other. Like two ends of a line, the journey is made from the memory of the place to the place itself; a dialogue between the thing and its shadow. How is the landscape perceived and described, from the work to the house, and vice versa?
