From July 30 – September 5, 2021, Mississauga Celebration Square is home to Mi Casa, Your Casa, an interactive installation designed by Mexico City-based artists Esrawe and Cadena. Visitors are invited to step inside one of 14 red frame houses and spend a moment reflecting on being back home on the square.
Mi Casa, Your Casa is inspired by the mercados of Latin America, lively street markets where human connections are made every day.
The installation features a series of three-dimensional red frames that illustrate the warmth, comfort, and safety of our homes. With their basic shape recognizable by all, the tiny houses form a blank canvas for community engagement and activity, where people of all ages can socialize in a playful spirit.
When a casa is empty, a welcoming white glow bids you to enter. Once inside, the glow intensifies to show that someone is home.
