Hatch Art Project inaugurated its first exhibition series with its second instalment, title Deciphering Dwellings: Home is Where the ___ is. This group exhibition will feature works by emerging artists from Southeast Asia.
Home is generally accompanied by powerful emotional bonds that engage us with a sense of nostalgic, almost mythical vision. A nostalgic understanding of home is a homogenous, peaceful, safe, and secure. A home allows people to be integrated within a meaningful and all-embracing structure through social and physical solidarity. Thus, the common expression goes ‘Home is where the heart is.’
However, there are other considerations when thinking of home. The eight emerging Southeast Asian artists in this exhibition suggest how a home is lived and experienced by people as a place.
