How does individual experience and background affect the way we look at things? How do we understand and contextualize an exhibit? Is it important to decipher everything? Is it possible to perceive art by purely intellectual means?
Artefacts can be symbolically shaped. They reflect history and can inform of their time and the reason made for. Examining the language of representation, this project is about understanding the purpose of objects and reinterpret their qualities as sources of inspiration and knowledge. Implicit of the notion of the ‘museum’ or ‘gallery’ as places of adding value to artefacts, the concept of meaning and rationale arises from the relationship between artist and audience. Challenging the various ways of questioning the content of an exhibit and making alternative interpretations of history from it, work examines the traditional conventions of displaying in relation to expectations of the viewer. Interested in the feeling of obscurity by evoking a sense of puzzlement through reforming the object, the limits of perceiving are challenged raising questions about importance and the causes signifying it.
