Ingeborg Meulendijks' architectonic scale models pare down interiors to their very essence. The viewer is led to ponder the meaning of a house, a home, and of housing, as well as the emotions tied to these concepts. The artist's photographs show fragments of the scale models as realistic interiors, fully furnished and decorated. The spaces depicted could be actual rooms where people live. Meulendijks' short films show the models being carried through abandoned buildings or over desolate terrain, reflecting the contrast between inside and out, openness and seclusion, vulnerability and security.
The artist's first architectonic project was carried out in 2009, and was commissioned by SKOR, the Dutch Foundation for Art and Public Domain. Her work can be characterized as subdued, contemplative, and intimate.
