In Home Entertainment a woman plays alone at home. Drawing on memories from her childhood she imagines the games she used to play, recreating scenes using household objects and furniture.
Clothed in bizarre costumes - a bikini made from dusters, a mermaid tail stitched from non-scratch silver scourers, a swimsuit knitted from J-cloth - she is rowing, driving, galloping, diving and sliding down the banisters. This domestic charade offers solace from societal expectations.
Kim Thornton’s conceptual portraits humorously combine making and photography to explore female stereotypes and domesticity.
