FEATHER DUSTING responds to feminism’s arduous and ongoing battle with domesticity and women's perceived role within the home. The exhibition’s theme is informed by and responds to classic feminist artworks, such as Martha Rosler’s 1974 video piece ‘The Semiotics of the Kitchen’,  which parodied women’s domestic labour, and ‘Womanhouse’, a feminist art installation and performance space co-created by Judy Chicago and Miriam Schapiro.

We invite you to consider what the contemporary offspring of these works might look like, within a world where, through the force of COVID-19, we are prompted to reevaluate our relationship with the domestic: to come face-to-face once again with the feather duster.
