About this product
- DescriptionDomesticity implicates tions of gender, sexuality, labour, class, ethnicity and taste. It draws upon the performative aspect of its occupants in space, and materialises ambitions for comfort, security, privacy and independence. The conserved domestic space is unlike the conserved monument. It must be flexible to change, intensified occupation, unusual habits, and robust eugh to accommodate use and decay. It is a space marked by the passing of time associated with occupancy - cycles of moving in, starting a family, growing old and dying. It is also, matter how temporary, a space one calls home and thus includes physical, geographical and mental registers related to this idea. What does it mean to conserve a house? Can conservation's motives and domesticity's purpose converge in the house's interior? This volume explores such questions by reflecting on the afterlife of several conserved domestic spaces.
