If you were buried for a thousand years even you would be priceless

Objects are top shelf in this exhibition of new media works, sculpture, drawing and painting which considers ways of living, time and how we value ‘things’; banal, practical and sentimental. Inspired by the shape, function and look of items, Alex Hobba, Patrick Larmour, Rosalind Lemoh, Darren Nedza, Timothy Phillips, Leila El Rayes and Camille Thomas show that what we collect, pay homage to, or create reflects and shapes society, bodies and identity.
