Home Imagined @ the bride

Home Imagined is an exhibition of work exploring the idea of home. Working primarily with her own hair, Brenna K. Murphy creates works on paper and site-specific installations. As the product of a nomadic upbringing, moving eight times and living in six states by the age of eighteen, Murphy became interested in the relationship between the ideal of home and the body. Her work explores the possibility that the body can be a surrogate home for those that don’t have one as is traditionally defined in our culture, while also acknowledging the temporality of the body and our collective cultural notion of what home means.
