Stay-at-Home Psycho

Domestic life can be really stressful. Sometimes you just wanna stuff your head into a Tupperware container full of Cheerios or mash a peanut butter and jelly sandwich so deep into your face that the world evaporates. And if anyone knows, it’s Miami-based artist Lee Materazzi.

The Central Saint Martins alum’s new solo show, “Feels Like Home,” running through June 5 at Spinello Gallery, attempts to harness those wildly dysfunctional impulses that occasionally seize the everyday homebound American. Grouped in the rubric of self-portraiture, Materazzi’s photographs and videos mine domestic territory — cooking, cleaning, laundering, etc. — for quiet emotional chaos, hints of failure, and other funny stuff. There’s also an interactive sculpture: a washing machine the artist likes to call “Mother.”
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 15. Continues through June 5, 2010
