Domestic Matter


Group Exhibition


Domestic Matter took place in my studio/home in central Athens in May 2017.
15 artists participated with the works they considered their most personal.
The exhibition curatorial statement follows:

The exhibition Domestic Matter brings together 15 visual artists working in different media and styles, under the common theme of the meeting of the domestic environment with the work of art.
The exhibition hosts artist Katerina Papazissi in her studio-home in Praxitelous 31, 2nd floor. The curating of the exhibition was done by Katerina in collaboration with the participating artists.

A private space, a hybrid living-working space in the center of Athens opens up to the public, revealing some hidden aspects of the everyday life of artists working in the city.
The fusion of the artist’s studio and home under the same roof, the domestic object or environment or the experience within this environment as the prima materia for the work of art, the work of art as an element of the domestic space, the difference in the artwork’s reception when exhibited in such a setting rather than in a formal exhibition space and the opening up of the private to the public are some of the themes that the exhibition’s curating addresses.

Opening up a private space to the public, the exhibition aims to stress the interplay between the two in shaping reality. Also, to start a discussion on the possibility of the personal or private to become the springboard for collaborative practices that can present alternative ways of dealing with the conditions of reality at a time when interest in art is geared towards public space while conditions push towards turning inwards.
