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, its Miami-based artist Lee Materazzi.
The Central Saint Martins alums 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, Materazzis photographs and videos mine domestic territory cooking, cleaning, laundering, etc. for quiet emotional chaos, hints of failure, and other funny stuff. Theres also an interactive sculpture: a washing machine the artist likes to call Mother.
Wednesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 15. Continues through June 5, 2010
