Originally built by architect Andre Bloc in 1949, La Maison Bloc is an unusual, geometric house owned by curator and collector Natalie Seroussi. Viewers must enter the dwelling's sculptural interior through a hidden hollow in its wooded surroundings in Meudon, France. Seroussi has been inviting artists to create architectural interventions and installations in and outside the structure since 2008. Her latest guest artist, Didier Faustino, altered the space with a bright, rust-colored entrance in the shape of a "Pow!" visual onomatopoeia. The outdoor work (which brings a loud, blatant pop culture reference into the quiet forest) leads the way into a sound installation composed of whimpering voices. A neon arrow sign sculpture illuminates the interior, further alluding to comic book imagery.
