THEME

Our home is where we physically dwell. We sleep there, eat there and spend time with loved ones there. On the most basic level, it shelters us from the elements. “Home sweet home” protects us and comforts us, a luxury that of course not all people enjoy. 


But home is also an idea; a state of mind. Our home is our own little corner of the universe. We might have a “home away from home”, or feel “at home” in places that remind us of home, and we tell visitors to “make yourself at home.” In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy chanted, “There’s no place like home”, while French philosopher Gaston Bachelard stated how the chief benefit of  home is that it “allows one to dream in peace.” 


We clean them, decorate them, and spend money to improve them, but what is the intangible that makes a home, HOME? 


JUROR'S STATEMENT

Home 2020 reflects a range of representations, from physical places, to dreams, to sentimental objects, to states of mind. Home can be laden with deep emotion, nostalgia, and aspirations for the future. In considering the artists awarded in this exhibition, I was particularly intrigued by those who explored issues of identity in the context of home, and who looked at home as a social concept that bridges cultural, economic, geographic, and even intangible divides. Thank you for all the artists who submitted their work and who – through a range of media – helped us see new perspectives on what home means individually and collectively. 

 

It is an honor to serve as a juror for this show, and congratulations to the honorees selected in this timely exhibition.
