Twisted Domestic

Popular culture has long presented us with an idealized, sentimental view of home. In reality, our connection to home is far more complex. Twisted Domestic explores these charged, multifarious relationships with home, addressing aspects of longing and disappointment often buried beneath layers of nostalgia. Some works in the exhibition evoke a sense of loss and emotional detachment often concealed from others. Alternately, other pieces illustrate how the mundane can become fantastically warped, recapturing the quirks and distortions of childhood imagination.

Examining our relationships with domestic objects, Twisted Domestic looks at the meanings we construct around home. In the domestic sphere, objects come together to create an environment that reflects the character of its residents.

As a group these objects become loaded with significance that can reveal both intended and unintended truths about identity.

Installed on the Tang’s mezzanine, Twisted Domestic includes works from the Museum’s collection by Marek Cecula, Julia Jacquette, Robert Lazzarini, Michael Mode, George Segal, Dean Snyder, George Stoll, and Jil Weinstock.
