welcome to the dollhouse

Heather Benning’s Dollhouse is a larger-than-life piece that was situated in a Saskatchewan field. The artist replaced the back of the house with Plexiglass, allowing for a typical dollhouse viewing. Inside, Benning had redecorated the abandoned house with furniture of the 1960s, when the house was left empty. Benning’s work is featured in the MADE in the WEST exhibit that closes in Calgary on June 8 and reopens in Edmonton on June 20.
