In a two-dimensional dystopian landscape of deserted, half-built houses in ex-communist Albania, an allegorical version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears unfolds.

Like so many Albanians, the owners of the unfinished homes emigrated to the West after the end of the totalitarian regime (1991).

Effi Weiss & Amir Borenstein invade the liminal space of the houses and occupy their emptiness, while the voice of an Albanian iso-polyphonic choir* sings poems based on interviews with locals responding to the artists’ invasion.

This act of reverse immigration, from a place regarded as representative of Western affluence to a place considered destitute and deficient, critically inquires into the status of artists as privileged foreigners, short-term migrants who come to work with a local community. It’s a movement from the full to the empty, from excess to lack.

*a traditional form from southern Albania
