Home(work) is a community-centric, interactive installation looking at local issues of domesticity and labour through the mediums of mark-making, sculpture, and drawing. It poses to the public this question: how do we value different kinds of labour in society? At its core is the installation’s interactivity. Everyday domestic objects are subverted and turned into art objects that participants can use to make marks. In doing so, the installation aims to encourage participants to contemplate their intersectional positions of house and art worker, and also gain a deeper awareness of the nature of labour used in the home.
Home(work) presents artworks and performances by artists from various backgrounds, presenting different interpretations and personal translations of domesticity and labour. There will also be programmed workshops and on-going activities for the public.
