Jo Ann Callis: Domestic Setups, 1995

Extending Jo Ann Callis’s ruminations on the home, Domestic Setups consisted of a series of small-scale, color photographs depicting household scenes–particularly beds and chairs–that Callis had modeled from clay, covered with brightly colored flocking, and arranged to resemble tiny, stage-like rooms. Callis’s interest in photography’s ability to convey a sense of physical immediacy was evident in these photographs, in which the furnishings suggest the psychological lives of imagined inhabitants through the lively dynamics of color, shape, texture, and arrangement.
