Value of the Find: Exhibition

I’m pleased to announce that one of my pieces has been selected for an exhibition at York St. Mary’s this Autumn. ‘Value of the Find’ is a pop-up exhibition running alongside the main exhibition, ‘Finding the Value’. The piece on show will be Teratoma.

Teratoma is part of a series of recent works investigating the idea of ‘non-functional functional objects’ – the idea being that if one removes an item’s purpose, it becomes an object of interest in itself. The word ‘teratoma’ refers to a specific type of tumour in which the growth encases fully-formed body parts: hair, teeth and even eyes. This piece explores the sense of absence/presence that is inherent in clothing – a shoe is essentially incomplete without a foot.

The exhibition runs from 24th October to 2nd November and features work from a number of British artists.
