“House/hold” by Photographer Csilla Klenyánszki

Csilla Klenyánszki is a Hungarian photographer and the founder of Mothers in Arts Residency, a studio space combined with a communal daycare.  She is currently based in the Netherlands.

Her recent series, “House/hold”, is a tongue-in-cheek exploration of women’s position in western society. It sheds light on the housework gender gap with a playfully sarcastic series of photographs documenting her ironical solution: a 30 minute yoga session combined with domestic chores. Klenyánszki elaborates:

“The session transforms the house into a space for meditation using domestic objects as its basic elements. Housework is being transformed into illumination: the repetitive act of house making becomes not just a physical but also a mental and spiritual act where women and their household objects become entangled. ‘House/hold’ is a guide for domestic meditation.”
