As in, us viewing the objects. the objects viewing each other. and then the objects.


Private view: Wed 3 Aug, 6-9pm

 Opening times: 4 Aug - 7 Aug, 2016. 12-6pm

'as in, us viewing the objects. the objects viewing each other. and then the objects' considers the nature of objects; by deconstructing objects we experience the multiple identities that an object contains.

By considering the actuality of the physical object, and our psychological understanding of it, we hope to open up debate into ways of deciphering them and begin to question the interaction that they have with us and each other.

This exhibition comprises of two young international artists who work within sculpture and photography. Through these differing mediums, all these objects will appear like sculptures. To interpret these works you must also take into account your own individual experience and knowledge of them.

When looking at objects, it is hard to know where we stand. Are objects purely meaningful in their physical existence? Or doesn’t our interaction with these objects and between themselves give them a soul?

Trent Bates, previously developing his practise in Utah, America now lives and works in London. A recent MFA graduate from Slade School of Fine Art. His work has best been achieved through photography, installation and performance art.

June Lam is an artist from Melbourne, Australia who is currently living and working in London. Currently in the process of completing an MA in Fine Art Sculpture at Slade School of Art she predominantly works within the medium of sculpture as a subject.

'as in, us viewing the objects. the objects viewing each other. and then the objects' is co-curated by Ben Harris and João Conceição. As two curators working together, we hope to echo the multiple viewpoints framed within this exhibition.
