Marjan Teeuwen creates large-scale architectural installations in buildings that are subsequently demolished following her interventions. She disrupts the materials of construction and structure and builds new artistic images in which floors are tilted, walls are removed, and stacks of debris either run rampant or are painstakingly ordered into architectural sculptures. Constructive forces go hand in hand with destruction and decay in Teeuwen’s work. This book presents several installations from her Destroyed House series, including the recent project Destroyed House Gaza. By choosing to work in occupied territory, Teeuwen allows the socio-political context to penetrate her method.
