Queer Domesticity

Artor Jesus Inkerö

video installation, Finland, 2021, 25 min

A multi-phase project looking at the notion “home” from a queer perspective.

In a series of videos and installations comprising drawing and collages, Inkerö explores pre-organised structures that lie within foundational, seemingly benign yet imperceptible architectural and domestic forces that shape society and emerging identities towards the heteronormative nuclear family.

They use mimicry and parody to investigate who writes the “home” script, and how we read it. As the mocking bird does it, they satirise hetero-normativity and recapture the transgressive potential of being queer.
