Home is where the ideal is? Alana Lawley’s construction and disorientation

Ideal Home I, 2010, Digital Print on aluminium, 30 x 30 cm Ideal Home I, is a construction made from found advertising images of idealised, fetishised space. Using medium format with digital processing the work engages with the physical, disorientating properties of domestic environments, objecthood, and the spatiality of photography.

Stuck: Zwischen den Wänden, 2012, Mixed media construction, dimensions variable (file that begins will 0112_overview…) Lawley’s dominating, four-panel construction, suspended using commercial display equipment, montages scans from interior design catalogs. Scaled to seduce, confront, and disorient the viewer who must negotiate multiple vantage points, her installation exposes the falsity of these fetishised interiors.
