Dom Kereta / Keret House - the narrowest house, 2012

project description

Model 1:25 of the Keret House is now in NY MoMA's permanent collection! MoMA Number: 322.2014

Three years have passed, since it's first presentation as a slightly impossible artistic concept during WolaArt festival in 2009. Today Keret House proves to be a possible venture, thus it costed The Fundation of Polish Modern Art and me a lot of blood, sweat and tears. Everything seemed to stand on its way: the space narrowness, the infrastructure, law and money. But since its creators were persistent and devoted to the vision, they've managed to convince and persuade other people: neighbors, authorities, administrators, sponsors and builders. Today the house, or rather an art installation of some 14m2 stands between two buildings by Żelazna St. in Warsaw!
I'd like to express my gratefulness to all, who believed and helped us. Thank you!
Jakub Szczęsny
ps. Not to omit my dear fiancee Marta, who was of great support all this time!

Ermitage will be a workplace, a hermitage created for an outstanding Isreali writer, Etgar Keret.
