‘Domestic Acoustics’ is an experimental endeavor that explores the overlap of domestic and creative spaces, and their relationship to the female artist. Portraits by Qatari artist Fatma Al-Remaihi are removed from storage; their movement and display, and oblique references to the artist through conversations with members of the household, quietly expose the layered relationship between artistic practice and life in the home.
