Inner Sanctuaries: Exploring Domestic Spaces
Juried Exhibition
April 23 - May 10, 2024
Reception: April 26, 5-7pm

Strata Gallery presents the Juried Exhibition “Inner Sanctuaries: Exploring Domestic Spaces,” juried by Stephanie J. Woods. “Inner Sanctuaries” will be on view from April 23rd through May 10th, with a reception on April 26th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

"Inner Sanctuaries: Exploring Domestic Space" invites contemplation on themes of grief, joy, sacredness, gender constructs, femininity, loneliness, memory, animal kinship, and the delicate interplay of existence. Through a diverse array of disciplines, including paintings, sculpture, photography, textiles, collages, drawings, and works on paper, this exhibition unfolds as a gentle ode to the sanctuaries we call home.

Selected with care, each artist offers a unique perspective, urging viewers to ponder the complexities of domesticity with both tenderness and introspection. Joni P. Gordon's poignant photography piece, Untitled (Beyond Expectation II Series), captures the experiences of a Jamaican immigrant navigating the realm of domestic service, prompting reflection on assumed roles and untold narratives. In moments of quiet reflection, Justin Carney's photography series, With Family Photos and Our Shadow, guide us through the labyrinth of loss juxtaposed against the joys of being alive. Meanwhile, Hugo Ximello-Salido's visionary work, The Radiance of Gender Fluidity, invites contemplation on the fluidity of time and our perception of gender.

These 33 featured artworks serve as whispers of cultural memory, prompting us to question the boundaries between the private and the public, the seen and the unseen. From the use of breast milk as a material language to the intimate embrace of self-swaddling and the use of everyday objects, this exhibition becomes an invitation to explore the essence of home and the sanctity of the human experience.
