A group exhibition exploring domestic rhythms
Thank you for visiting DOING EASY! ¶ Manifesting as a domestic intervention in the High Desert of California, DOING EASY presents the work of visual artists, designers, and writers that reflect on the sway of place. For the visitor and house guest, DOING EASY celebrates domestic rhythms as they meander between notions of Labor & Play, Expediency & Slowness, Poetry & Function. ¶ DOING EASY optimistically engages with the domestic space as a privileged and underestimated sanctuary for reflection, education, production, and ritual. The presented works—ranging from a cork doorstop to a wooden chair to a folder of poems to a scented hand soap—have been installed in a way which allows them to slip into the daily routines and rhythms of a living, breathing home. DOING EASY creates a domestic universe of orbiting works that propose and champion the possibilities for personal enactments of small-scaled domestic utopias. ¶ Thank you for staying and don’t forget to sign our guestbook!
