In the same way that the concept of “home” finds itself alternately represented as a dwelling to occupy and an impossible idyllic destination, the anthropomorphic figures occupying this space constitute both interiors and exteriors, containers and contents. They invoke strange stories: which man is of the type who’s made himself from this soft armour? Against which insidious peril? Against what disaster is he looking to survive? Which sophisticated means enabled him to design the skillful patron ? Protection built from typical flooring of our abodes shows the opposite and seems to both arm against the dangers and to point out their nature.
