Continuing their Artist-Initiated Projects program at Pallas, Domestic Bliss reflects on the desire for a home, and how to make one. We are told the work in this exhibition, “blurs the lines between the personal and universal, image and object, memory and desire. Paintings of domestic interiors are sourced from the collective memory and imagination; the aspirational homes of Home Alone and Mrs. Doubtfire.
Textiles and sculptures juxtapose the canon of modern design with childhood memories of life in a bedsit, where objects take on the role of an entire room; the tv, the microwave, and the bed, the potted plant as a garden. These real and imagined places and objects describe the places we live, and the home we carry around in our heads.”
Pallas Projects/Studios, opens Thursday September 14 and runs to Saturday September 30.
