FRESHLY BAKED DOMESTIC GODDESSES

Allegra Salindini - Caitlin Higgins - Grace Higgins Brown - Pea Doherty

Aiming to create a space for a dialogue around domesticity and the rituals of the home, we want to question stereotypical notions of ‘craft’, and the position of women amongst such typecasting. As artists that all utilise ‘everyday’, recognisable objects and rituals within their work we see a rife of possibility within the home as a traditional setting that encompasses and encourages conversation, creation, and consumption. Thus it is a marked invitation for participation; an intrinsic catalyst for collectivity. We are thinking about how we can combine and compare the processes of ceramics and food-making, make visible the actions normally kept behind closed doors; seeing domesticity not necessarily as a wholesome notion. To open your door to the public could therefore be somewhat of a political act; to share your daily habits, routines, and shed your privacy, all of which will be exploited through a collection of exhibited works, and a general participatory open-door policy.

It’s been said that we’re domestic goddesses, but does that work for, or against us as women in the art world, let alone in the world at large?
