Was it this house or another similar looking house?
thisHOUSE? is an installation comprising a series of paintings, photographs, and assemblage made in response to an historic crime scene. It is an attempt to re- remember ‘the house’ of a crime; a house which has stalked dreams and waking moments. thisHOUSE? is an icon that mutates and shifts forms, embellishing the experience of personal violation and lost innocence. It’s a spectre that endures within a maelstrom of consciousness and dreamscapes.
The work is a memorial narrative of how trauma and pain has lived within a survivor. Using paint, mixed media and decorative motifs, thisHOUSE? signifies the idea, that a crime, once experienced in a bucolic Sussex village, doesn’t define you but shapes you. The installation invites the viewer to inhabit thisHOUSE?,to probe and celebrate survival.
If décor is the skin of a house, Veronica Slater’s new series thisHOUSE? peels it back to go beneath to the brick and mortar of what we house and what houses us. If the house is the self, what happens when the house is broken into and that core image of refuge perturbed? Slater’s paintings play out the dichotomies of pattern and place, of the ideal and its fracture in powerful works that also resonate with themes of artifice and nature, of the synthetic and the organic. The image of the house tumbles and spins, until it floats into a pixelated universe of dreamy resolution.
