Dwelling is an exploration of the domestic space and the personas that may evolve through these spaces. Thinking about the repetition of tasks and the familiar sites of the home, narratives are created to comment on relentless labour and the strangeness of the comings and goings of the home.
A number of historic locations become backdrops, stages or sites for making work. The re-contextualization of objects made for such places take the viewer through subtle juxtapositions of time and reality. Blurring the relationship between fact and fiction the viewer questions what they are looking at and the process by which history is written and how we establish truth.
Launch event: Wednesday 8 October 2014, 6 pm - 8 pm, to attend please email to confirm your attendance.
This exhibition is curated and hosted by Bonington Gallery.
