Reliquary is a group show at Syson in Nottingham of 5 artists and is curated by Jennie Syson. The exhibition opens on Thursday 20th June and runs until 23rd August. I will be showing several Transitory Paintings.
This exhibition is concerned with how contemporary artists approach objects as containers – as a reliquary contains objects of devotion – vessel like containers and even shelf like structures made by sculptors often evoke or suggest the same hint at the possibility of containing or presenting something desirable. As nineteenth century collectors’ cabinets of curiosity held special and totemic items: artists, curators and collectors still maintain a desire to contain and present beautiful objects within vessels. The picture frame itself, or the pages of a book could also be described as a container for object veneration.
