The theme of this exhibition might be objects, but it is very much about people, family and personal connection, memento and memorial. Deeply personal, we are given an intimate look into the lives of each of the artists, and even though each of the installations is very different there is an overall sense of unity and cohesion, connections behind the superficial separation.
Utility or appearance, form versus function, use or ornament: these are often the ways we determine an object's value. But beyond these obvious traits lies meaning, and what an object means to us on a personal and emotional level matters far more. Each of the works in this exhibition carries such meaning, and therein lies the value.
