King Hunter
Site-specific installation with vinyl tiles, audio, and mixed media
Dimensions variable
2013

In the form of vinyl tiles, a midcentury kitchen plan designed by architect Margaret King Hunter is taken from a 1956 Life Magazine and materialized in the atrium of the University of Florida Center for Women’s Studies. Accompanied by the sounds of demolition and female athletes mobilizing on a basketball court, this anachronistic form conflates notions of aesthetic decoration with modernist abstraction, and a historically designated “woman’s space” plays upon a contemporary one.
