Dollhouses are understood as gendered spaces for speculation and idealization. They are interpretive play spaces for the enactment of social and identity constructs. In her second exhibition at Vox Populi, Erica Prince presents the dollhouse as an expanded psychological space: unpredictable, fragmentary, and unapologetically tied to its feminine perspective. A large scale cutaway dollhouse exposes empty rooms ripe with potential and a collection of drawings reveal fragile glimpses into the lives that could exist there. Ultimately, Prince continues to question the lifestyle design choices that we make, individually and as a culture, and how they reflect our states of being, our essential and constructed identities and our hopes and dreams for the future.
