These exhibitions include visual artists inspired and informed by architectural practices, modern living situations and shared experiences. Alongside architects and designers who highlight the process behind building forms and structures for people to live in. Together their work explores personal decisions and societal norms that work to define a modern habitat.
The work is inherently a self-reflection on the artists individual values and beliefs within their work and home life. Chasing multiple viewpoints, highlighting failures, or challenging affluent domesticity. The exhibitions consider the constant yet, hard to define way in which we build our personal spaces. Whether we seek help from others to design and build a structure, or simply relish our ability to acquire objects to fill the space. We build our homes with the desire for stability, but with it comes the complexities, anxieties, and contradictions of contemporary life.
