Monte Vista Projects presents Arrangement Against Content by Caitlin Mullally. Arrangement Against Content is a sculptural sound installation that addresses domestic beauty and its relationship with conceptual art. Caitlin Mullally has been researching the art of arrangement in relation to sound, china and floral combinations, exploring the tropes of comfort and safety of the “feminine” as a quality of these formats as the containers of meaning. The artist is interested in the atmospheres and feelings created by domestic spaces, as well as regarding them as poetic experiences, and how we consciously and unconsciously construct notions of comfort. The piece discusses the presumed absence of content or aesthetic value of those environments, questioning the lack of need for interpretation in domestic spaces. The installation is inspired by the atmospherics of paintings by James Abbott McNeill Whistler.
