Unwanted Miracles is a drawing exhibition of food choppers by Richard and Sebastian Lloyd, a father/son alliance who work under the name Legepladsen.

About

For Legepladsen, these kitchen devices are outmoded objects, mostly used once or twice before being deposited at the bottom of the cupboard. They represent objects in a dislocated state. 
Their chief focus has been to work with the gaps and overlaps between traditional drawing and digital printing/painting and ostensibly with the image under attack from time. The drawings begin through a re-working of the motifs found on their packaging and by extracting attributes of the aged commodity. The drawings are both printed and drawn onto distressed OS map covers.
Legepladsen is Danish for ‘the playground’ and refers to the visual arts games and after dinner engagement carried out whilst Sebastian was growing up. Legepladsen are motivated by developing perspectives in understanding the world through the aesthetics of the found and the potency of thing power.

The exhibition is accompanied by an artists' talk on Saturday 22nd September at 2pm. Free, just turn up. All welcome.
