26 Lower Clapton Road
London E5 0PD
14 July – 5 August 2018
Private view: Friday 13 July 2018 6 – 9 pm | 7pm performance
Four artists explore the relationship between art and the ordinary. Madi Acharya-Baskerville, Hayley Harrison, Anne Parfitt and Nick Pearson are inspired by found and discarded objects and materials in their individual practice.
Objection invites an investigation of the opaque and shifting boundaries between art and not-art – of art’s uncertainty. Plastic bags, beachcombed wood, the ‘stuff’ people leave on pavements, souvenirs discarded at charity shops … the artists connect with the history, narratives and cultural meaning encapsulated in this residue of modern life, and approach them as vehicles of transformation and reflection.
The Private View on 13 will feature a performance by Hayley Harrison. A ritual commiserating empty crips packets, “Home is now” navigates home as a shelter, community and ancestry while questioning our complicated relationship with nature which we have processed and objectified.
