Objects can reveal a lot about human nature; an inclination to make, possess, consume, covet, touch, use or fetishise.
Object Lessons presents the work of nine artists who utilise objects within their practice that in a broad sense consider objects as cultural artefacts and in so doing prompt further questions about our own assignations and perceptions of significance, authenticity and value. With a set of seemingly disparate works that draw on histories, designs and materiality, Object Lessons invites us not just to look, but to consider our relationship to, and complicity, with objects.
