Aleksandra Domanović’s work looks at the history and development of technology through a gender-conscious lens. Her work specifically focuses the point at which machine meets, interfaces and touches the human user.
In her first institutional solo exhibition in the UK, Domanović focuses on the figure of the lone female cosmonaut, exploring the marginalised representation of women within popular science fiction and time travel. Using the building’s position and architectural features, Domanović has re-contextualised the gallery as a time-less survival pod, inhabitable during the day. Outside of gallery opening hours the glowing sculptures can be viewed from the outside, creating a beacon to passers-by.
Domanović merges the stellar narrative with an abstracted history of the former tobacco merchant’s house, exploring its position as an erstwhile telephone exchange and connecting us with its female ‘computers’.
