This Condition at Regina Rex
In a house we have things. Things that recline or unfurl, things to cook or clean, things to part, things to groom, things to plump, and to smooth. In a state of fevered dream, these things elicit appetites. This Condition brings together works that subvert the objects and actions of everyday home life, inflecting them with desire and arousal. Presenting paintings and sculptures that invoke the surreal, uncanny and anthropomorphic, these artists discover echoes of the body within the domestic quotidian. Taking inspiration from a Lydia Davis poem of the same title, the works in This Condition reveal the pathos, humor and aphrodisiacal nature of the stuff around us.
