Madeline Mace aims to challenge roles within a stereotypical American family, especially in relation to the feminine domestic life. She uses readymade objects associated with memories and/or masculine symbolism—specifically objects that evoke a sense of danger or threat. She confuses these objects by surrounding—and therefore controlling—them with fibrous materials that are delicate and soft. Repetition is a recurring theme in her work and how it relates to the female domestic experience in a controlled environment.
