‘Ornamenting the Home’
Fragments of the open studio during ART Rotterdam ‘21.
In February/March 2022 a site-specific installation of ‘Ornamenting the Home’ will be on show at A Shop Called LIFE.
Where you come from, what you take with you, and what you leave behind, says a lot about where you are now. The past and the present are intertwined, trickling through to your everyday life, all the while shaping how you see, experience, and act.
As a starting point for Ornamenting the Home, Katrein Breukers and Liza Wolters drew on their own childhood memories. Both have lived in unconventional home situations and have explored ways to (silently) resist the spaces they were in. Some fleeting situations, expressions, or gestures become clear - and clearly absurd - only in hindsight.
For Ornamenting the Home they work in an associative way, using photographs from their family albums to make sculptural collages from texiles, ceramics, print, video and text.
