Building off the notion of home, community and trouble within, “from Tea Party definitions of marriage to Occupy Wall Street tent cities,” Momenta Art’s group show “Broken Homes” deals with ruptures in domestic spaces, physical and metaphorical. Highlights: Leah Oates’ images of boarded up buildings and carts of salvaged trash, rattling though haphazardly urbanized Taipei and Anthony Marchetti’s unsympathetic, documentary style portraits of vacated suburban tract homes and the trash left behind.
More trash. It seems to go along with the notion of a broken home — what falls out when order is shaken, what’s left when tenants leave — it’s all waste. Or is that reading into it? Interpret for yourself: “Broken Homes,” Group Show, Dec 9 – Jan 22, Momenta Art, NYC
