In stillness and silence the objects sit the show; covered by light or darkness they stand confronted with their own inanimate reflections. Both the projection and the physical form duel for a debatable presence of actuality amid the gaze of the spectator and the emptiness of the after hours.
The objects presented in this exhibition seek to develop an opportunity to gain a sense of personality by extending to you the offer of a relationship with a bittersweet depiction of artistic trends from the past and present along with references to the outsider and the amateur.
The work looks at the role of an object in trying to achieve status, monetary value and ultimately a lasting sense of meaning. These objects display themselves in a way that aims to critique the more familiar modes of presentation by reconfiguring the salon hang and the role of the plinth in showcasing an object.
