What is lost and what is found in the process of returning home? homecomings revisits, through varying means of translation, spatial and conceptual loci of homecoming within artistic practice. The exhibition and symposium series, from which this publication stems, draws its principle inspiration from the architectural and linguistic returns and repetitions punctuating artist Hreinn Friðfinnsson’s House Project (1974–) and author Georges Perec’s Espèces d’espaces (Species of Spaces, 1974).
