A short film by Elora Kadir. Elora ponders the relationship we have to the objects in our home and the ways in which they bring us comfort. The film uses the idea of comfort to frame an approach to disability and how we could think about accessibility.
In 2022, the Artquest Unlocking the Collection residency at Museum of the Home supported an artist in the development of their practice through research.
Artist-researcher, Elora Kadir, spent a few months delving into our collections. As part of her residency, Elora produced a short film in which she explores the relationship we have with the objects in our home and the ways in which they bring us comfort. The film uses the idea of comfort to frame an approach to disability and how we could think about accessibility.
"The residency was a great opportunity to pick up and develop a lot of new skills. I had the chance to work with an archive for the first time which allowed me to stay engaged with my art practice. I had time to simply sit and learn from the collection which was really valuable." - Elora Kadir, 2023
