In her multimedia installation Domestic Science, Annegien van Doorn sets in motion everyday substances such as toothpaste, custard and mayonnaise. In 3h, Foam’s exhibition space for young international talent, she presents photographic and video work which establishes relationships between ordinary, everyday and banal objects from our daily lives. The objects that Van Doorn uses in her work move beyond their day-to-day function and thus take on a new form. Domestic objects that are usually considered as visually worthless turn out to have qualities that are easily overlooked. Through playful, humorous and absurd actions, these trivial objects reveal the appeal and sexuality that is hidden behind their homely appearance and they pay an unexpected tribute to the imagination.
