Gairloch Gardens


In House & Home & Garden, her first solo museum exhibition, Partheniou presents an installation environment that skews our perception of the materials of everyday life. Providing a unique context and architecture for Partheniou’s practice, Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens—formerly a private home—becomes a space in transition. Rooms seemingly undergoing renovation are joined by uncanny sculptural objects that evoke the activities of both residents and contractors. Seamlessly blending actual and fabricated construction materials, and presenting replicas of once-functional objects like light bulbs, candle sticks and toys, Partheniou proffers a scene poised between the order of daily routine and the chaotic upheaval of change.
