Study for a domiciled gallery is a site specific installation in the Museum of Modern Art, Kuwait composed of a living room, glass, steel.
This work is a study to examine the relation or disconnect between between private spaces and public, the possibilities of regional homes to be domiciled in public galleries and museums. Will regional museums receive the collections of citizens and residents? Will museum boards incorporate present individuals? If the museum plays a role in the community, will the community, citizen and resident be able to reciprocate and play a role in the museum? Communities are usually the main stake holders for public spaces. When immigration is non-institutionalized, what becomes of the collections? What is the destiny of private spaces, to what degree will they be part of museum written narratives?
