‘Private/Public’, is an exhibition exploring the concept of domestic space in a gallery context, through the work of twelve international artists, Hannah Forbes Black, Ting-Ting Cheng, Yin-Hua Chu, Sarah Churlish, Gerard Cuartero, Milena Galli, Denise Hickey, Steve Hines, Sule Kemanci, Katherine Lubar, Clare Motte and Chong Boon Pok, using various media to investigate the relationship between occupants and their homes.
Questioning the relationship between domestic space and occupancy, the works included attempt to come to terms with the complex dialogue between the inhabitant and the home.
What does domestic space mean to us? And what is the relationship between us and our living space?
How does it reflect our personal history and everyday routine?
By examining these spaces, what does this reveal about ourselves?
Furthermore, when private space becomes public in the context of a contemporary art exhibition, what has been changed?
The artists in the exhibition use photography, painting, drawing and installation, creating a poetic reflection of the connection between time, objects, space and the viewer, asking the poignant question of spatial identity in the private arena. In the exhibition, Now domesticated, Gallery 320 oscillates between the private and the public.
The exhibition has been curated by Ting-Ting Cheng.
