12 June - 31 August
Turning gendered semiotics and the genre works of domestic settings on its head, 'Shelter Domestics' examines the pandemic lockdown situation of home life brought about by COVID-19, where boundaries of the private and the public are blurred and at times, interchanged. It asks questions about the new politics of home as a place of confinement, refuge, work and play and the tensions that arise from these conflicting functions. Featuring the works of twenty-six artists across a range of mediums from twelve countries, 'Shelter Domestics' captures the uncertain present and serves as a vivid documentation of a significant moment in history.
'Shelter Domestics' is the final instalment of a suite of three online exhibitions by Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studios. The gallery's first online exhibition of international and local artists, 'Shelter Domestics' is presented in two formats - an online image gallery and a 3D Virtual Reality exhibition space. Both galleries are on view till 31 August on the Gallery Lane Cove + Creative Studios website.
