WITHIN THE DOMESTIC

Alfreda McHale

Alfreda McHale's emphasis on the feminine and the domestic means that she tends to use unconventional materials in her work; these are mainly materials which derive from the feminine domestic sphere. Using the Found Object discovered within the home, is often the starting-point for her choice and use of materials in her installations, prompting her audience to rethink their pre-conceptions of domestic life and to reconnect with their own memories of childhood in the home. McHale wears her feminism lightly, but it does underpin her artistic re-evaluation of women's roles in modern society, and their important but often overlooked knowledge and experience.
