PLAySPACE Gallery and Ann Schnake, as part of the Fem Salon series, present DOMESTICITY UN-HinGED.  Taking the form of an immersive installation based on the space of the home, DOMESTICITY UN-HinGED interrogates the latent tensions of domestic life that arise from shifting economic conditions, rapid changes in gender roles and expectations, and the instability of a globally mobile age.

 

A slightly feral form of domesticity will be enacted in the space of the gallery, a collision of actual use, engagement, visual elements and ideas where materials defy standard places and contingency remembers the fixed. One room of the gallery evokes a “library” aesthetic with handmade books; works of stitchery or other forms of domestic craft; and periodic film showings. The other room will re-work a living space, where the elements—including giant spoons, a couch encumbered by a meteor, and a “laundry” made of pigskin—push against our senses of comfort, our sense of “home.”

 

Artists in the exhibition include: Ann Schnake, Sita Bhaumik, Johanna Barron with James Rexroad, Elizabeth Dorbad, Alex Hernandez, Nance O’Banion, Radka Pulliam, Julia Robertson, Sharon Sisken with Claudia Bernardi & Robilee Frederick, Hilary Schwartz, Amber Stucke, Cassie Thorton, Natasha Wheat, Alison Yates, and Jake Ziemann.

 

PLAySPACE is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday, 1-4, and Fridays, 2-6, or by appointment.
