MEMORY, REMEMBER, OBLIVION
The house of the future is stronger. Clearer, more vast than all the houses of the past. In front of the home house works the image of the dream house.
Gaston Bachelard. "The Poetics of Space".
Death, we are not accustomed to it (..) death, being that to which we are not used, we come to it or as to wonder unusual or unfamiliar as horrifying.
Maurice Blanchot. "The Step not beyond".
The box, bucket, home, the grave -the cabinet- feed the body, as an element of privacy. The body remains there, alive, dead. A house comes to be inhabited by a living body, a tomb for the dead-one, in the dwelling house are the shadows.
The house and the tomb appear as a necessity of the living and the dead body. The house is erect, the top, standing -is a vertical close to the ground, led to heaven-. The grave is an horizontal, a vertical earthly heaven.
Redo the house is to remember the house but also the grave. Le Corbusier not only built his home but also his tomb.
The door, window and wall-tomb are built from the model of the body, height x width as the house and the grave are built.
The tomb is a tomb, a tumor, a mob, a swollen bed air of the soul that wants to get out.
The wall-tomb differs from the door, the first one is a door with no knob, no lock; it blends with the wall. The entrance is secret, no holes or small holes. Everything inside is a real secret.
Life is a game -everyone plays their cards- better or worse. In the game, the imagination and the memory build the house.
The body of the church, started from the horizontal ground. Earthbound: a carpet of honorable deceased, a cemetery led to heaven. Plural dead beds, negative gaps as absence bodies. The dead and living ones share the dream.
Funerary art, fill the vacuum caused by the death, maintaining the illusion that the deceased has not been devoured by time. The grave -as the last home and seat of the soul- is transmitting the absence of the being and the presence of the non-being.
