© Preeti Singh From Home to War Kitchen | A Study of Fragility, aims at creating a study of a space that extends domesticated subjectivities concerned with the kitchen – a gendered space – to an imaginative exchange with a setting that functions in completely different environments but shares a common thread of identification. The artist is interested in creating a network of communication among people who function in kitchen spaces in vastly diverse settings. Anchored at the core to everyday personal kitchen experiences, to militarised kitchen experiences and also extending this to visualising the enemy’s kitchen – this has the capacity to touch upon common human emotions connected to this space in real, imaginary and philosophical ways.
