A House You Can Finally Afford

Interactive Installation at the Parks Canada Macaulay House

A House You Can Finally Afford is a sculptural collaboration by Bennie Allain and Jared Klok. The piece is something of a “tiny home” on wheels that playfully conforms to the historical architectural paradigms established in town while providing a critique on the housing situation facing Dawson City renters and would-be buyers. Viewers were able to interact with the object – according to safe distancing measures at the time of showing – through a series of wry signage, visual cues as well as objects, ephemera and assemblages inside the ‘home.’
