Curated by Co.Curation is a show that collects work from artists around the theme of the domestic – and the impact of the Covid crisis in the domestic sphere. They write:
In these hard times of isolation, economic crisis and social distancing our home has become a symbol of safety and comfort for so many. Distanced Domestic explores our shared experiences in domesticity during social isolation, and responds to existing ideas of domestic labour and feminist economics. The impact of Covid-19 on young families, children further highlights the inequalities in domestic labor and women’s issues that take place behind closed doors. This show calls for a shift in our perspectives on our roles in a domestic space.
