Before I leave the house series
Domestic Realm, 2017 (Installation detail)
Stephanie De Biasi explores the thingness of the ready-made, presented in an everyday environment. Altering the scale, material, and changing the context, allows the human - object interaction to be revived. These modifications redirect the commonalities of the day, towards something less ordinary.
We rely on the intended use of these appliances to support us throughout the morning, evening and night. We need to allow time to rest, before the repeated nature of our daily routine takes over, and we find ourselves with yet another half empty cup of tea.
Creating a sense of poetry within the object world allows the mind to ease, providing space to notice these now absurd things.
