possessed possessions


Artists:Jesses Leroy-Smith, Richard Ballinger, Chris Priest, Sam Bassett, and Delpha Hudson display found objects manipulated and transformed collaboratively. Part of the Object Project, Possessed Possessions presents the objects we own (‘possessions' — with the implication there are special properties attached to these objects), alchemically changed by a variety of transmutative processes, and combinations. The repetition of ‘possess' is ironic as there in fact no ownership of these objects, as yet. The definition of ‘possession', ‘spurred or moved by a strong feeling, madness, or a supernatural power', could be construed as describing either the artists, or indeed the objects themselves. The closing event (Sat 23rd) at Penzance Exchange, Silver Screen Seance will feature the artist band The Objects, performance poetry and Sally Crabtree's ‘art tart' cakes
