“Make Yourself At Home” draws its inspiration from the idea of transforming the gallery into a multi room house dressed for a typical days living. Rarely do we ponder the aesthetics of the mundane objects that comprise our domestic reality. Whether their function is decorative, utilitarian, a source of sensuality, comfort, entertainment or convenience, the objects that surround us impact our daily lives in both immense and miniscule ways.
In recreating and detailing this private living space in our public gallery, the exhibit seeks to create a more immediate and intimate relationship between the viewer and the featured artworks, to enhance the contemplation of the everyday unseen. We hope to project the viewer into a more personal space where they are able to sit at the kitchen table, watch TV from the couch, stretch out on the bed – in short – where they can literally, make themselves at home.
Many of the artists in “Make Yourself At Home” worked within traditional forms, while others re-invented both the function and form of archetypal models.
