Liliya Art Gallery is delighted to present, A Kind of Human Clothing, which brings together seven contemporary artists to explore the subject of interiors.
As a global and everyday experience, the interior (in particular the domestic space) has been a popular choice of subject matter for artists throughout history. From eighteenth century Dutch genre painting to modern examples such as Tracey Emin’s political piece ‘My Bed’, the interior and the objects within them have been utilised to spark social and political commentary as well as reveal aspects of ourselves and our private lives. The title of this exhibition originates from Georg Hegel who called the interior ‘a kind of human clothing’. In this way, Hegel suggests that the interior projects a physical manifestation of our inner selves. The artists grapple with contemporary notions of what it is to exist in a binary space and how the figures and objects they depict can offer more than at first glance.
