“I am interested in life as a form of theater, particularly in ways domestic space has been acted in and acted upon. I am intrigued by the ‘scenes’ that people construct in their homes with all their semiotic referents not just to their individual pleasures but, more importantly, to the ones that are socially prescribed. What fascinates me is the subtle mix between the notions of fantasy and reality; the constructed and the found; as well as performed and lived experience. In the series Home Theater I am photographing domestic spaces in which sadomasochistic sex acts are taking place. The predilections of sex in this work metaphorize the other aspects of our lives that are so highly ritualized.” - Hrvoje Slovenc
