9781780231808: Playing at Home: The House in Contemporary Art (Art Since the '80s)

 Art Since the ’80s, a new series from Reaktion Books, seeks to offer compelling surveys of popular themes in contemporary art. In the first book in the series, Gill Perry reveals how the house and the idea of home have inspired a range of imaginative and playful works by artists across the globe. Exploring how artists have engaged with this theme in different contexts—from mobile homes and beach houses to haunted houses and broken homes—Playing at Home shows that our relationship with houses involves complex responses in which gender, race, class, and status overlap, and that through these relationships we turn a house into a home. Perry looks at the works of numerous artists, including Tracey Emin, Rachel Whiteread, Michael Landy, Mike Kelley, and Peter Garfield, as well as the work of artists who travel across continents and see home as a shifting notion, such as Do-Ho-Suh and Song Dong. She also engages with the work of philosophers and cultural theorists from Walter Benjamin and Gaston Bachelard to Johan Huizinga and Henri Lefebvre, who inform our understanding of living and dwelling. Ultimately, she argues that irony, parody, and play are equally important in our interpretations of these works on the home. With over one hundred images, Playing at Home covers a wide range of art and media in a fascinating look at why there’s no place like home.

About the Author:

Gill Perry is professor of art history at the Open University, UK, and the author of Women Artists and the Parisian Avant-Garde and Spectacular Flirtations: Viewing the Actress in British Art and Theatre, 1768–1820

Review:

“Gill Perry’s fascinating book considers what makes a house a home and why artists are repeatedly drawn to it as a motif. Chapters look at particular types of houses, from those that are haunted to beachside retreats and caravans. Rachel Whiteread’s House (1993) and Michael Landy’s Semi-Detached (2004) make appearances, and this well-illustrated volume goes on to include a wide range of art from around the globe.”  (Art Quarterly)

“Perry has written a scholarly, readable, and timely survey of an important theme. This book reminds us of the capacity of art to deepen our understanding of a contested, contentious concept.” (Art Newspaper)

“A book that has readers demanding more is always praiseworthy, and Gil Perry’s ability to read a work of art, and explain it accessibly, while still honouring the artist’s often complex intentions, is both rare and valuable. For this alone Playing at Home is welcome.” (Times Literary Supplement)

Descripción Reaktion Books, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. There s no place like home ; safe as houses ; home is where the heart is : ideas of the house and home are rich in cultural cliches and contradictory meanings. Playing at Home explores the different ways in which artists have engaged with this popular everyday theme - from broken homes to haunted houses, doll s houses, mobile homes and greenhouses. The book considers how issues of gender, identity, class and place can overlap and interact in our relationships with home , and how certain artworks disturb our comfortable ideas of what it means to be at home . While other books have touched on examples of the uncanny and surreal presentation of houses in art, this one argues that an understanding of the role of irony and play, and the critical potential of the everyday , are equally important in our interpretations of these intriguing works. The author draws on the work of philosophers, cultural theorists and art critics to enrich our understanding of this genre. Covering the work of well-known artists, including Tracey Emin, Gordon Matta-Clark, Rachel Whiteread, Cornelia Parker, Vito Acconci, Michael Landy, Richard Wilson, Mike Kelley and Louise Bourgeois, the book also looks at artists who travel across continents, for whom home is a shifting notion, such as Do-Ho Suh and Pascale Marthine Tayou. Discussing a wide range of media, including installation and film, and richly illustrated, Playing at Home is a compelling survey of one of contemporary art s popular themes.
