Utensils

"Utensils" was developed through an interview process in which we asked various acquaintances about their familial memories, particularly getting at the effect parental rituals and behaviors can have on children and spouses, and, in doing so, we became unsettlingly aware of how the nature of familial roles shift and blend in response to growing up and old.

 

Originally set outdoors on a blue porch, and subsequently indoors in messy, makeshift living rooms, we strung together vignettes derived from different relationship dynamics into one protean partnership, wherein the family member is abstracted into a desire to be loved and a strategy by which to achieve it.
