Treehouse Kit – Guy Ben-Ner

Treehouse Kit (excerpt) (2005, 2.3MB, 1 min.)

Excerpt from a single channel video installation and sculpture by Guy Ben-Ner.
“Treehouse Kit” consists of a large wooden tree created from recombined, generic furniture.
The sculpture is presented along with an instructional style video in which Ben-Ner
(in swim trunks and a huge beard, a cross between Robinson Crusoe and an archetypical Israeli settler) converts the pre-fab tree back into a rudimentary home.

Originally commissioned for the Israeli Pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale 2005.
