About

In 2013/15/17 we presented Domestic works in tower blocks in transition — little did we know then, that in 2020 our homes would become our only stages and only auditoria…

For our pilot “Domestic at home”, we invited six artists to try out new works about what was on their minds — using whatever resources they had to hand.

Join us on 12 August for our second set of “artists at home” — seven works selected from our rolling open call for proposals. Real lives, real stories, real homes.

Programme

Andrew Neil Hayes · English Psycho
 An intimate portrait of one man’s absurd morning routine, which tries to encapsulate all the horror of being English.

Daniel & Clara · We Had Planned To Go Camping…
 From a tent in their back garden, Daniel & Clara take an imagined journey to Cornwall — a trip that was planned but never took place due to the pandemic.

Dominique Savitri Baron-Bonarjee · Hula dancing at the sink
“Plants are watching every move I make with their sensuous eyes — why don’t I move for them, with them? Why not make every movement a way to hula dance my way through the day, to make my chores ASMR for nonhumans.”

Kellie Colbert · Social Butterfly
 An exploration of the increase of social anxiety one may feel as life returns to some normality. Follow Kellie through the life created inside her mind that will support her journey back to society.
 Filmed by Billy Morris.

melissandre varin · Eating the (m)other
 An invitation to think, through queer use of (dis)placed / (dis)posable food and Black kinky hair as healing materials.

Niya B · Hollow Spaces
“Through a ritual of light and breath I turn inwards.”
“I reassess the process of a changing body within an expanded temporal context.”
“Surrounded by mineral formations and magnetic attractions I discover fleeting moments of rest.”
“Healing is allowed. Existence is hollow.”
 Sound by Body Fool.

Sebastian H-W · SIRENX (bath-time with a mer-thing)
 An intimate audience from a domestic bathtub with SIRENX — a ‘mer-thing’; a genderqueer man-made-merman-maid — learn a little decolonial history about gender, queerness, mythical monsters, self-care, limitations, and transformations.

Domestic (August 2020) hosted by Peader Kirk + produced by hÅb.
