Exquisite Corpse, Domestic Disturbance
Domestic disturbance continues Nicole Robson’s fascination with the theatricality of human domestic environments. Within this work Robson emphasizes the tendency to bring ‘nature’ into our suburban living spaces through various forms of mass produced décor. Robson often works with home furnishings that depict a distorted manifestation of nature and have had a previous ‘life’ – in someone’s home or left in a cupboard for that special occasion that never came. The artificial materiality and contrived aesthetics of the objects she chooses are frequently so far removed from what they seek to evoke that they are considered kitsch.
