​Trigger's Broom considers how the paradoxical figure of Trigger’s Broom, from the BBC TV series Only Fools and Horses, can operate as an exemplary conceptual model for thinking critically, productively and collaboratively about the mercurial life and transformational power of objects in contemporary practice.​

In an episode of the BBC sitcom Only Fools and Horses, Trigger tells how he has been awarded a medal for using the same broom for twenty years, before revealing that the broom has had seventeen new heads and fourteen new handles. Wikipedia now lists Trigger’s Broom as a contemporary version of the ancient paradox of identity known variously as Theseus’ Ship, Locke’s Sock, Washington’s Axe, and Jeannot’s Knife: when does something which changes cease to be itself?

Featuring: Jo Addison, Adam Gillam, Anna Hughes, Neill Kidgell, Max Mosscrop, Clunie Reid, Alice Walton

Curated by Adam Gillam and Max Mosscrop

millimetre 02 is an exhibition space contained within a single picture frame. Devised by artists Finlay Taylor and Kate Scrivener this space for group exhibitions forces invited curators to consider and exploit scale, intimacy and the close juxtaposition of artworks.
