Meyer Vaisman, Green on the Outside, Red on the Inside, 1994.

On the outside, an informal rancho as built by the people of Caracas: clay tile block, zinc roof, held by miscellaneous urban debris. On closer inspection, the windows are cast human pelvises, the joints hair and cement, and inlayed in the wall are casts of pig skulls. On the inside, Meyer’s childhood room, its furniture, books, and objects are kept for him as he left them, displaced from his parent’s house in Caracas.
