The exhibition “Ulay Babait” (Maybe at Home) is composed of artists who work in experimental , often interactive ways to develop living relationships between artists and participant. Some works are even intended to reach out beyond the space of the exhibition, sometimes all the way to the visitor's home. This happens through instructions or suggestions of participation that allow the spectators to become active participants in the work.
Ulay Babait poses a question for the visitor: Who really inhabits the house? This is also a more general territorial question; in other words, Who really inhabits any space? With whom is this territory divided or shared? And what are the possible dynamics and sensations involved in the relationships among all the possible inhabitants of a space?
Ulay Babait can be an answer for these questions; however it is a fragile answer that recognizes the cracks and the structural mistakes, that notices the flow and the fragile balance of our assumptions about the self.
