Presenting Wandering Home by Juliana Wisdom, a sculptural fine arts exhibition exploring the physical and emotional needs a home fulfills. The artist plays with combining the ideas of privacy, security, comfort, mixed with transience and mobility. Her current work focuses on creating parallels between forms inspired by shelled mollusks and historical women’s undergarments. “I was intrigued by the idea of stripping away unnecessary material to create the most fundamental notion of home, one that could be taken anywhere a person goes.” Using both structured and delicate garment materials, Wisdom's work reveals conflict between restriction and insecurity in our relationship with what we call home.
