Home is a complex idea imbued with a variety of meanings and associations. This exhibition explores home as a mutable emotional and conceptual phenomenon inextricably linked to physical spaces, which are subject to a cycle of construction, deconstruction, and reconstruction. Highly personalized, these spaces continually evolve as their inhabitants age or move, eventually replaced by new inhabitants or none at all. Homes are markers and souvenirs of personal narratives and inner lives. Whether actual or staged, physical or conceptual, idyllic or ruined, they are products of the imaginations of both those who construct and inhabit them and others who gaze upon them from the outside.
