Conditioned Comforts

30 July 2021 - 5 September 2021

Emma Fsadni’s first large-scale solo show develops her concerns with her generation’s state of being, enveloped as it is, in twenty-first century soothing-tools.

Her interest in how man-made comforts impact on her contemporaries’ existence is explored through abstract forms, muted colours and several installations, derived from in-depth interviews with friends and colleagues.

The term ‘conditioned comforts’ encapsulates our reliance on human made forms of ‘comfort’; the word human made is here interpreted in its literal materialistic sense, while also extending the notion of ‘human’ to the ‘self’, i.e. something self-made. The juxtaposing nature of the words ‘Conditioned’ and ‘Comfort’ suggests that these familiar forms of ease are acquired through repetition making them un-innate. This leads us to question if the pursuit of such comfort has to be produced or learnt, then just how comforting is it to our lives?
