House Arrest: Domestic Actions
House Arrest: Domestic Actions is a six-screen installation with multi-channel sound created in collaboration with Zoë Irvine.
In House Arrest: Domestic Actions the kitchen table is used as a stage for a series of small scale, resonant domestic actions. Using ordinary and familiar items such as eggs, cream, tea cups, an iron, kitchen utensils etc, Spence and Irvine perform a sonorous choreography to camera where actions allow for subtle transgressions.
These slight contraventions of the norms of domestic behaviour bring heightened consideration to common household acts.
