Home Instruction Manual

@ McCullough, Jan



Presentation by the artist:

"Traditionally, instruction manuals have been the perfect source for practical solutions. Experts in specific subjects provide written authority on how to repair faults and carry out tasks from scratch.

I typed ‘how to make a home’ into Google, and was directed to an online chat forum in which self-described experts were exchanging detailed instructions. I rented an ordinary suburban house and carried out the strangers’ advice exactly over the period of two months. In complying with the instructions for making the perfect home, I contemplated the construction of an identity from scratch. The following photographs document the end result of my time living and working in the house, trying on different lives for size."

This book was the winner of the "Kassel Fotobookfestival Dummy Award 2015" and was shortlisted for the "Author Book Award" at the "Rencontres d'Arles 2016" festival.
