ISCP TalkSeptember 19, 2017, 6:30–8pm
Salon: Kristyna and Marek Milde and Yumiko Ono
Kristyna and Marek Milde will speak about their art practice and current project Home in a Home, a research-based work that explores domestic identities. Specifically, they investigate the role of collecting nonfunctional objects and memorabilia in creating personal space. The Mildes’ art practice engages themes of modern lifestyles and everyday realities, including domesticity, food, and a variety of cultural rituals that explore society’s alienation from the wider environmental context.
Yumiko Ono will address her interest in communist culture, especially in the field of architecture and how the idea of utopia connects to her own cultural background. She will explain how this interest circulates throughout her current research in New York. Ono will also present past works to demonstrate the evolution of her work from a particular point of view about form.
