Drawn from their own experience of intercontinental relocation and the subsequent feelings of up-rootedness upon ‘homecoming’, emerging artist Bruno Panucci shares observations from the aircraft seat which acts as a metonymy for (extra)personal states of transition in the liminal space that is the Fuselage.

The installation is activated by a segmented twenty-hour durational performance, mapping the personal but also complicating, for eclectic audiences, the uncanny and abstract notion of ‘home' - as both a nowhere and now/here state. Like the aeroplane, Fuselage and its inhabitants are ever changing and in constant transit. Offering the prophetic potential to reimagine these non-spaces, spaces between temporality and location, in a post-nation narrative. 

Or in the musings of Alain De Botton, “with the inflight tray, we make ourselves at home in this unhomely place.”
