iGNANT Domestic Stories

Exploring The Absurdity Of Household Objects


Multidisciplinary artists Kristine /StudioRifa and Pernille Andersen collaborated on the "Domestic Stories" to explore the intersection of set design and set styling. The photo series, which features tableaux of household objects, evokes an aura of elegance with a touch of absurdity. Despite the random array of objects in each image, there is an overarching sense of continuity. Not only that, each setup seems to be in motion with its own personality.
