Created for the Auckland Festival of Photography 2017 by Max Irving-Lamb and Jessica O’Reilly, the Paper House is a large-scale, wire frame installation situated in the ballroom of historic Alberton. Its walls are made of paper - 1863 scrolled images on the theme 'A Piece of Home' by artists and the public.
The house is the literal structure; home is the subjective content that the images by these diverse contributors bring to it. Viewers/participants enter the structure and choose a photo to take away so that gradually the house loses its form over the duration of the exhibition.
