FABLES FROM THE HOUSE OF IBAAN 2007

"…a man pensively seated at a table. Flanked only by a milk jug and votive candleholders, the static image serves as the front piece for a projected film. The central scene unfolds in an airy hallway amidst the easy domesticity of a central family unit. The son runs in and out of the plane, as the mother carefully refills the symbolic glass pitcher. This sense of comfort is quickly tempered by Kaleka’s deft handling of time. The artist dissembles and reassembles the viewer’s sense of space by playing with the concept of indoor versus outdoor. Also, his rich attention to detail underscores the work’s sublime quality and transports the viewer into a suspended realm".
