House/hold "The most extraordinary thing in the world is an ordinary man and an ordinary woman and their ordinary children." — G.K. Chesterton
Hillerbrand+Magsamen’s work reinterprets the people, activities and objects of their everyday life as they navigate perceptions of identity, heroism and family within a uniquely American subjectivity. In the photographic series House/hold, the artists take a heroic look at their ordinary day-to-day lives through self-portraits of themselves and children. The titles come from Shakespeare and mythology such as Ophelia, Hercules and Diana.
