Home Un-homey Home is a series of illustrations made with screen printing. The illustrations depict the relationship between Italian women and the domestic environment in a way that questions the cozy and comfortable concept of home as representative of Italian culture. A sequence of events is shown in the exhibition that aims to replace the Italian idealized idea of the relationship between women and the domestic environment with a claustrophobic universe of silent melancholy.
