Housewarming explores the idea of home through objects that make references to habitational spaces, activated through the routines of day-to-day life.

Works in this exhibition range from functional to representational forms, and many share a relationship to the body through suggestions of sustenance and care. Other works may problematize the idea of the home, gesturing instead towards a subversion of stereotypical images, questioning whether or not these are always welcoming spaces.

All of the work in the exhibition shows a skillful deployment of materials in ways that speak to varied and complex relationships with the idea of home.
