Abstract

This exhibition examines the way the domestic worlds we have known insert their presence in our inner lives through dream and memory: our psyches are in a sense embedded in bricks and mortar and the banal objects of our everyday lives. The domestic therefore is an important site for investigation by contemporary artists. Bachelard speaks of what is 'mellow', 'imprecise', "shadowy", 'dissolving', 'fluid' : these words have guided the selection of the work and therefore determine the mood of the show. They point us toward the two underlying but integral themes in the exhibition: perception and memory, absence and loss.
