Stories from the Interior (1)

3 March–2 April

Home explores the private realms of the domestic spaces we inhabit, personal and cultural identity, relationships, history and memory. A new series of photographs of local residents’ in their home by Linda Wachtel commissioned by Glen Eira City Council in 2016, are featured in the exhibition. The commissioned photographs examine the diversity of private domestic spaces in the local community; relationships; family values; daily rituals; domestic décor; and personal, cultural or spiritual concerns.

Works by Jane Burton, Graham Fletcher, Prudence Flint, Lee Grant, Janina Green, Noel McKenna and Wolfgang Sievers are also included in this richly layered exhibition, which illuminates real and imagined visions of home. The viewer is invited to reflect on aspects of everyday life, the role of place, décor, the familiar and unfamiliar, and the narratives played out within domestic environments.
