Description

Jacob’s installation “Habitat,” detailed here, was realized in 2005 at Toronto’s Art Gallery of Ontario. The extensive work comprises six interconnecting rooms for meeting, yoga, DJ-ing, reading, sleep and one devoted to the contrast between hard and soft, which feature ceramic objects presented under museum vitrines.

Luis Jacob’s work can be read as metaphors for de-hierarchization, coexistence, and universality. A habitat in anthropology designates ageographical region as dwelling place or settlement area of aparticular population group. Biologically, a habitat considered as a characteristic dwelling place or location may consist of several biotopes. Conversely, a biotope may support several habitats. In this sense the exhibition title references a potential community of individuals living with or alongside each other.
