From telephones, pint glasses, coffee cups and football shirts to fly-posters, basic computer graphics and the language of product design, five London-based artists draw on the unassuming objects and materials of everyday modern living. Their shared interests go beyond injecting the over-familiar with something new or strange. Using simple gestures, action, sculpture and print, their works carry pathos and poetry.
