Revisiting Undomesticated

Revisiting Undomesticated presents works that situate the home as a point for investigation into the complex relationships that occur between people, objects, and their physical environment. In 2011, the curatorial collaboration known as Casa Duno presented its first ever exhibition entitled Undomesticated. The exhibition featured artists who transfigure mundane objects drawn from the domestic sphere in ways that disrupt traditional notions of function and form. Originally, Undomesticated aimed to bring attention to the relationship people have with objects and questioned how the dynamic changes when objects shift from “everyday” to Art and from the home to the gallery. For their MOUNT residency at Design Cloud, Casa Duno presents Revisiting Undomesticated, an exhibition of artists who are pushing the envelope of how contemporary makers navigate these increasingly blurry boundaries.

The works highlighted in this exhibition communicate both personal narratives and universal themes of memory and loss, truth and artifice, and intimacy and repair. Revisiting Undomesticated explores the fragility of the physical shelters we call “home” as well as the emotions and memories that are inextricably intertwined.
