Matrilineal Hauntings

On exhibit now
Schneider Haus National Historic Site

During the early time of the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, it was necessary to reconsider the question of safety in the home through the lens of domestic violence. In Matrilineal Hauntings, the artworks of Kathy Kranias express the somatics of resting, stretching and surging toward freedom. They acknowledge the ghostly apparitions of violence which sometimes haunt the spaces of domestic architecture.
