About Walmer Yard
‘Assemblage: art that is made by assembling disparate elements – often
everyday objects.’
Welcome to the inaugural event in the new public programme at
Walmer Yard.
This first season explores contemporary domesticity and how
technology is changing our domestic behaviours.
The home is a fundamental aspect of all our lives. It provides
security, shelter, and a place for the everyday activities of life –
eating, sleeping, socialising, working, relaxing – to take place.
Our homes are tightly tied to our identities, being a place we
can shape our environments. They act as a bridge between the
private and the social.
But what influence is modern technology having on this? Are
we developing a new concept of domestic space? And how is it
changing our domestic behaviour?
At Walmer Yard we have a home that is like no other. A group of
houses which eschew the impact of modern technologies and
invite us to slow down and to contemplate.
We call today an ʻassemblageʼ to reflect the gathering of many
different speakers, participants and formats taking place during
the day, Assemblage: Exploring Domesticity, takes the form of a
series of encounters and events held across the homes. Turn over
the page to find out what is going on and where.
