Talk: Homing: the work of Jason Ferguson and Matt Kenyon

Homing, (re)considers the notion of domesticity through a combination of ideas, metaphors, and objects that take as a starting point aspects and images of the home. In the nearly 10 years that have passed since Kenyon and Ferguson’s MoCAD exhibition the world has undergone a social and political unraveling forcing many to turn inward; to reflect and re-evaluate what is truly meaningful in their lives. Homing will address the heightened intimacy of home while challenging the invisible systems that govern day-to-day existence.
