Artistic project : Title Deed
Title Deed is a site-specific intervention into a post-war suburb. It was originally created as part of The Leona Drive Project, 2009. By appropriating an existing home slated for demolition and covering it in a recognizable shade of “Monopoly” green paint, An Te Liu uses the uncanny familiarity of the building’s architectural form to gesture towards the broader forces of financial speculation and property-ownership at play in the development of the city.
