Creating order through the (re)arrangement of domestic space discovers a social ritual that extends beyond 19th century etiquette and bourgeois home design. The illusion of organization and control perpetuated by this arrangement, which often serves as a way of hiding ones self, can be subverted if the physical objects of the home and garden are placed in direct opposition to the internal language of unrest these objects create. I reinvent common household objects as a way to break the prospect of perfection and create a more honest, although convoluted and disorganized, reflection of the household environment.
I often use traditional forms of drawing and printmaking as elements in larger installations as a means to create a new domestic space, or re-create domestic space anew. The process of re-creating that space is dynamic, and often it varies as I respond to unique objects and found materials that I incorporate. http://www.annemuntges.com
