The photograph ‘Relaxation Island’ is part of Eleonora Agostini’s recent series, ‘A Blurry Aftertaste’. This series consists of a collection of photographs and one sculpture. All of the works consider the complexity of the domestic space. Above all, the artist achieves this by questioning relationship powers in her family and the role of labour within the borders of the home.
Working at the intersection between photography, performance and sculpture, Eleonora’s interests lie in alluding to that which is beneath the surface. She also shows interest in discovering a possible fracture and new meanings within our contemporary domestic experience. The house is a place where memories can be reconstructed. It is also where intimacy and claustrophobia can exist simultaneously. Similarly, it is a space to investigate how our familiar domestic existence can be reconsidered and redefined. Equally, it is a platform where Eleonora translates the gestures of everyday memories into new scenarios performed for the camera.
