A suburb in the middle of Williamsburg? Now that the Times has anointed Williamsburg the next cool neighborhood, we might as well move on to that inevitable next step. Artist Andrew Ohanesian is doing just that with The House Party, "a full-scale, participant activated installation" in North 14th Street's The Boiler gallery. Photographer Will Femia wandered by the spot last week and snapped the above photo of the installation in progress. When it opens to the public on September 14, it will contain a "spatially accurage, quintessentially American suburban home," which Ohanesian "displaces from its native suburban landscape by reconstructing it within the walls of the Boiler, a repurposed urban-industrial space currently functioning as a contemporary art gallery. The House is then opened up to the public for a house party?giving each viewer the unique opportunity to physically leave his or her own scar on the House, by partying within it throughout the evening."
