"Empty House" is one object from a series of 16 cubic models that Maximilian Verhas worked on to develop more rolling sculptures. During his work on these different models, he noticed their architectural moments. To clarify this aspect, he first made concrete casts of them, because the material alone evoked the association with a building. If one imagines this object even as high as a house made of concrete, it becomes architecture that can be directly spatially experienced by the viewer by walking on it. These "houses" are not usable buildings, they lack any protective function, there are no sheltering spaces. With the title, which translates as "empty house," Maximilian Verhas alludes precisely to this difference from functional architecture.
