Joy Forum is a kind of anti-statement and anti-architecture in confrontation with the surrounding building.
A gallery where we can handle and disarm any overwhelming feelings of institutional powerlessness.
Joy Forum presents Aleidis Skua.

As a child I would always hide in/under furniture when my abusive father would explode at
me, my mum or my brother – it was a way of finding shelter in a secondary, smaller house that I had full control over, as well as a way of hiding my crying or anxiety from him. Usually equipped with a pen or crayons I started to draw in/under my mini-houses within the house. The drawings were usually of ‘homes’ within nature.

My parents didn’t find out until a few years ago when they got a new coffee table and inevitably flipped over the old one. Drawings that only existed within my small house until it got demolished and turned over so to speak.

Opening hours 11.04- 15.04. 09:00-15:00 (Weekends closed)
