Building on earlier works with cage constructions, Lucas Lenglet placed red wire netting in front of all the windows of his corner house and turned his own house into a cage. Lenglet: 'I see it as an incentive to think about what position i have in the community in which i live: to what extent am I expected to participate, how much from the outside do I allow and what relationship do I enter into with the other?'.

Smári Róbertsson delt with the hidden and unknown by exploring folklore, such as the folk tale 'The Father of the Eighteen Elves'. When you looked up to his studio-house from the street, you could spot a long stick poking out of the window. Attached to a tree, you'll found a text entitled: 'Poking The Unknown With A Really Long Stick'. The work is an invitation to reveal the underlying motives, value systems and conditions in perception and in ourselves.
