Home Theatre is a group exhibition presenting five different, but related views of contemporary domestic space. Karin Bubaš sees residential spaces as indexing the residue of human passing, especially the physical traces of domestic routines. Lynda Gammon conflates the home, the studio and Merzbau effects in her architectural re-renderings of her Rotterdam studio. Arni Haraldsson’s images of the B.C. Binning House in West Vancouver reveal a modernist home virtually converted into a gallery/museum. Oliver Michaels treats domestic architecture as a variegated landscape through which we pass as explorers on a miniature train. Carol Sawyer’s Flux photographs record the traces left by past inhabitants in empty Strathcona houses undergoing renovation. Each artist shows us evidence of domestic spaces as a stage, as places to be choreographed, to be acted in and upon. These artists analyze contemporary residential living space, revealing and celebrating the uncanny strangeness of the way we inhabit built environments today.
