A home is many things, banal and everyday but always of the utmost importance. We all experience moments within our individual contexts of home or family but do not necessarily share them beyond the physical construct of our own setting.
There is an unspoken curiosity to see how others have these moments. We are all guilty of taking glimspes through windows to see how others live. What is this compulsion? Is this curiosity, just plain nosiness, or is it something more? Is it a desire to validate our own existence, to elicit self-reflection? What are we looking for when we glimpse through into another’s life?
Opening: 6pm 1 July
Dates: 1-15 July
Tue to Sat 12-4pm
