HOME presents … Housework

By HOME

 

From 8 Dec, Mon-Thu 8.30am-4.30pm, Fri 8.30am-10.00pm, Sat 9.00am-5.00pm, to 19 Dec, free.

 

The main room of Housework contains an installation, called Wine Baby, regarding maintenance labour practices, specifically the role of child rearing, since, ‘[…] The labours of cooking and child rearing are intimately connected to public events [and] need to be thought of as equivalent to other forms of oppression’ (Helen Molesworth, House Work and Art Work in The Everyday: Documents of Contemporary Art, 2000, p. 172).  In a reversal of public and private acts, where ‘[…] The work of maintenance is neither exclusively public nor private; it is the realm of human activities that serves to bind the two,’ (2000, p. 176) the child of Joe Stevens (born 14.12.13) will be looked after (by Joe) in the gallery, as she would be looked after at home.  For this, the room will be made up to resemble a domestic setting.  The public will be free to talk to and interact with Joe, his daughter and the environment of the installation.  In short, the routine from home will be transposed and reconfigured for the gallery space.

The wall-mounted series of works, entitled Work Ethic, come from working life in a labour-intensive factory setting and evolved out of a process of collection.  The materials used were sourced from, or related to, a former place of employment.  The process of collecting here can be seen as a resistance strategy to the tedium and monotony of work.

 

 

Joe Stevens and Andrew Pullan are HOME. Our collaborative practice stems from the nature of HOME and its effects. Our HOME is a sanctuary where our problems are neutralized, freeing us from societal constraints. Our HOME takes care of us and structures our lives. We are Outsider artists in the Arte Povera tradition, working in performance, video, installation, sculpture, photography and painting.

What’s New?

Mixed media work and prints by Steven Trevillion 

31st October-13th November
Private View – 31st October 7-9pm

This is Steven Trevillion’s first solo show. It consists of multimedia paintings and collagraph prints produced by the artist over the last two years. The use of collage techniques, the tearing and gluing of paper and the layering of paint over complex surfaces are all features of this recent work. But ‘What’s New?’ is more than an opportunity for the artist to show new work. In the subterranean spaces of HOUSE Gallery Trevillion invites us to question our assumptions about the relationship between new and old, part and whole, creativity and destructiveness. He encourages us to see connections in everything. The show encompasses a range of moods from the dramatic to the playful, and while some of the work can be experienced in purely abstract terms other pieces invite the viewer to enter a new world or to construct their own narrative.
