How does art relate to everyday experience? Does it propose new experiences or reinforce old differences? Can an artwork be lived with? Does it demand space of a certain size? Can it co-habit with other things?
We invited artists to make artworks which reflect on everyday life, domestic space, the familiar, and human scale. Their responses, which will be added here over several months, take on ideas of honesty, speculation, the seen and unseen structures of the home, as well as gestures and rituals within used space.
Jonathan Michael Ray
An artwork is part of the space it occupies. It should not act as though it were destined for better surroundings: it should not need an interior decorator or a project architect.
