The exhibition opens the organisation’s spring programme and draws on “the marginalized position of women in sci-ﬁ and cyber-feminism” alongside her own personal narrative that coincides with “the rise of the internet” and the collapse of Domanović’s home in Soviet Yugoslavia.
Named after pioneering computer scientist Borka Jerman Blažič’s self-proclamation, Mother of This Domain is organised by Plug In ICA —where the artist’s show of the same name closed in January —and builds on the themes of private and public history established with Hotel Marina Lučicain Samos, Greece, late last year.
Meanwhile, Glasgow-based, Canadian artist Corin Sworn has a solo presentation of two works —’Endless Renovation’ (2010) and ‘Vibrant Matter’ (2014) —running in parallel at Oakville Galleries’ Gairloch Gardens space, and exploring methods of narrative production and its processes.
