A kitchen sink drama
February 9th - February 25th
'Soap' is a new work being produced by the artist Emilia Bergmark for the exhibition with the same name at the project space Sirin, in Copenhagen. The work was inspired by a sub-genre of British Social Realism known as the "Kitchen-sink-drama". Taking place in the private sphere of the home, 'Soap' addresses contemporary anxieties such as economy, performance pressure, and equality in the modern home with a humorous approach.
