Curiosity in itself is a fundamental part of any artist; that need to analyze, enquire and experiment is the starting point of any work of art. The inquisitive mind of the artist is reflected throughout the works on show, with artworks that dissect, transform and fall outside the usual constraints.
Like the purpose of a gallery, curiosity is also a distraction from the everyday and the mundane; an escape from reality. These works draw us to them with a strange fascination, sparking our imagination into the realms of the peculiar, the unfamiliar and unknown.
Hand-picked by the curator, these unexpected objects explore the strange and wonderful in contemporary art. These objects define classification, standing alone as objects of a rare and curious quality; whilst collectively creating a display that blurs the boundaries of contemporary art into the realms of science, fantasy and history
Featuring the work of Duncan Cameron, Giulia Caccittolo, Henny Burnett, Helen Wheeler, Jane Fairhurst, Lee Finch, Luke Irving, Paul Tuppeny, Penny Alexander, Martha Lyons-Haywood, Ruby Tingle and Thaleia Kavvada
