“Perverted Living” is an exhibition that plays with the notions of baseness, sensuality and subjugated senses within the framework of contemporary lifestyle choices. The boundaries of the sensorial hierarchy will be overturned, allowing for a synesthetic bleeding, a heterarchy of perverse sensuality.
“Perverted Living” elevates Camp artifice and celebrates domestic perversion, from Hanley’s Jell-O banquet served on a used mattress to Raeder’s pornographic sitting room and freshly baked inedible delights. “Perverted Living” takes your hetero/homonormative sensibilities and feeds them through a meatgrinder.

Providing an emergent and provisional context for artwork by both Chicago-based and International artists, FLAT Space claims the domestic space as its point of departure, intersection and arrival.
