About the exhibition:
“on going home” is a new series of work in which Audrey addresses themes of femininity, mental health and homemaking. Through domestic materials including fabric, porcelain, wallpaper and found furniture, Audrey breaks down interior design to use furniture in a metaphorical capacity. Through re-creation of objects, Audrey removes structural and supportive qualities of furniture, leaving an idea and shell of the object- in this, creating narrative, and communicating anxious histories through fragmented installations and drawings.
