To inhabit a home means to leave traces; it is a place of self-expression, a place of one’s own. We collect and display what we choose: a print, a chipped figurine, a collection of spoons or plates, photographs, books, a rug, a painting whose origin is forgotten, an unmade bed .well I just kind of like it, edited by Wendy Erskine, comprises a collection of writing and images about art in the home and the home as art. Through a beautifully arranged series of essays, conversations, photographs, fragments, drawings, and reflections, each contributor sheds light on the stuff of the home in a vital and compelling way.
