manuel cosentino’s work ‘behind a little house’ is an intimate participatory art project where wall-mounted photographs and a participatory artist book lead the viewer to turn from an outside observer, a spectator, into an active participant.
the first image resembles a big-bang like notion, that sets everything into motion, while the last picture represents a new beginning – ‘that piece of ‘carte blanche’ that we are all given with our lives’. the book is an essential part of the project.'as for the location, I never mention where the little house is, I prefer it to transcend geographical placement and become an idea.'
'we all live under the same sky after all…'
