Situated outside the entrance of the new Regent Park Community Centre, Model Home, is an inhabitable sculptural space that attempts to provide a specific portrait of ‘home’ – one that reflects the community and its inhabitants. Inspired by the importance of one’s home and domestic environment, the artwork is a means of documenting and bringing together a collection of meaningful personal artefacts and possessions, In essence, the piece will be a collective portrait of home for the culturally rich and demographically diverse residents of the Regent Park neighbourhood.
Through a series of community workshops, interested residents from the community submitted meaningful personal objects from their own homes for documentation and inclusion in the final sculptural space. As well, a dedicated project website was created to document the collected personal objects and their stories.
