Biennale Interieur investigates homemaking in the digital age
Anna Bergren Miller provides a short write-up in Shareable on how Joseph Grima and Space Caviar explored changing notions of domesticity at the 2014 Biennale Interieur.
“At this year’s Biennale Interieur in Kortrijk, Belgium, British architect Joseph Grima turned the opportunity to curate the show’s cultural program on its head, creating a kind of anti-program revolving around a negative definition. Titled “SQM: The home does not exist,” the series argues that domesticity as we knew it isâ€”or should beâ€”dead, and asks what will emerge to fill the void. Through film, text, two architectural installations, and a choreographed performance by domestic robots, Grima and his Italian design and research collaborative Space Caviar interrogate twentieth-century cultural assumptions within the context of today’s economic and technological realities.”
