Net curtains

These curtains evoke domesticity but highlight the duality of the home as sanctuary and prison. They reference the slippage between the homely and the unhomely, described in Freud’s theory of the uncanny. Some express the unsaid thoughts of the homeowner, others reflect the role of the curtain as a silent witness in the home, absorbing what is said and done and revealing hidden truths. Others appear to have taken on a life of their own and become complicit in the terrors of the haunted house.
