ABOUT TRIPTYCH ARTS

Triptych Arts is a curatorial collective and nonprofit 501(c)3 organization that aims to reinterpret and restructure the nature of exhibitions and public programs through innovative curatorial interventions and collaborations with various social systems.

HER DOMAIN focuses on the changing notion of “Home” during the Covid pandemic. According to Piper Ross Ferriter, a founder of Triptych Arts: “What does domesticity mean in light of the home bound era prompted by technological progress and the novel virus COVID-19? Domestic life or “house- work” has long been relegated to the married woman but the current conditions of a global pandemic and recommendations from government officials to stay at home and work from home force us to revisit the notion. At the same time, a large segment of the population is considered “essential” and forced to continue working outside the home to support a country in crisis.

 

Her Domain seeks to address the evolving experiences of “home”—whether they be makeshift substitutes for essential workers unable to return home for fear of contaminating loved ones, strange landscapes due to the endless internment of those housebound, or simply memories of life before it was all upended. This group show honors the long lineage of women who have traditionally grappled with the topics of home, house, and hearth by featuring female artists who further subvert their meanings. When our carefully constructed visions of home become increasingly difficult to defend, they collapse into something surreal. Our interior worlds have become warped by our wild and unreasonable exterior reality. Like the contemporary woman and the current pandemic she finds herself in, Her Domain explores the uncanny and bizarre that has become our new normal.”
