Of a Domestic Ritual

A private gallery visit with artist Ashley Czajkowski

INFOCUS members are invited to a private gallery talk with artist Ashley Czajkowski on her newest solo exhibition, Of a Domestic Ritual at the Eye Lounge. Ashley will provide unique insight into this exhibition and her artistic practice. The exhibition runs through February 12 and consists of installation works combining photographic imagery, sculptural objects, and video projections. The question of the “domestic” in these pieces speaks to the home and traditional expectations of women, but also to the relationship between notions of domesticity and animality, posing just how the idea of “taming wild things” pertains to the realm of the feminine.
