For Tooth House, Kiaer conceives studio models and dwelling propositions for Frederick Kiesler’s* biomorphic architectural design, Endless House (1958-59). The exhibition, demarcated by four distinct palette shifts of yellow, white, brown and grey, suggests models for future scientific solutions whilst anachronistically embodying the decay of a primitive past. Like Kiesler’s own break from De Still to the surreal, the objects in Tooth House allude to a past life forgotten; crustaceous cement forms culled from holes in the earth, an idea of a monochrome or perhaps stand-in for a formalist painting, and an inflatable that hangs somewhere between aspiration and complete despair.
