New Exhibition Opening: Expansions of Homecraft, 28 May, 6pm
Expansions of Homecraft is a group exhibition with work by Hildur Hákonardóttir, Toncirkeln (Shida Shahabi and Anna Sóley Tryggvadóttir), and Kristina Schultz with Johan Lindberg and Liss Schultz.
Join us in the opening of Expansions of Homecraft, our seventh exhibition within the programme Home Works – investigating the politics of domestic work and the home. The exhibition departs from an investigation into the radical forms of creativity generated in the home that challenge hegemonic values of patriarchy, and production, and expand a notion of what homecraft can be. Through the works within this exhibition, homecraft moves from traditional forms, like weaving and sewing, to the craft within the social work of the home – so-called immaterial productions like caring, cleaning and conversing.
6pm – Opening of Expansions of Homecraft.
6.30pm – Jenny and Jens present the exhibition with the artists Hildur Hákonardóttir and Kristina Schultz.
7pm – Food served. Donations go towards Foreningen Hem.
8pm – late – Homemade kitchen disco! Bring your favourite songs, then we dance together!
Hildur Hákonardóttir presents work from the 1970s produced during an intense period of feminist activity in Iceland, during the time of the Women’s Day Off demonstrations. Gender struggle and a critique of patriarchal society permeates all of Hákonardóttir’s works. This is her first major exhibition in Sweden.
Kristina Schultz with Johan Lindberg and Liss Schultz present, Home as a Tool for Exploring Life, a radical project to remake their whole home environment over 100 days.
Toncirkeln exhibit a sound work developed from a workshop with children from Martinskolan in Hökarängen, created with instruments made and played in the kitchen at Konsthall C.
