The Object and the Beholden - 3D virtual exhibition by Arts Project Australia

The Object and the Beholden

Thu, 07/30/2020 to Thu, 08/06/2020

curated by:

It seems that for the foreseeable future we are to be confined to our domestic environment, the dwelling in these intimate spaces generating ever-closer relationships with the objects within them. While caring about possessions may, for some, appear as a moral failing, it does not necessarily equate to greed or materialism. Objects create meaning and comfort and can serve as bridges to people, places and moments in time, tapping into raw emotion. A gift from a loved one, a memento collected as a reminder of places close to the heart, a potted plant tenderly cared for in a favourite light-filled corner, a treasured teacup, a chair lovingly restored or the artwork that indescribably stirs us.
 
Objects can embody goals, manifest drive, generate sentiment and shape identities. We are makers and users of objects, carving meaning out of our domestic environment. And rather than serving as a poor substitute for human interaction, objects amplify connections; they are portals to memories and vessels for notions of a sense of self and belonging. They amplify and cradle our experiences and provide solace, much like a security blanket might serve as psychological comfort for a child in an unusual or challenging situation. And we most certainly find ourselves in one of those.
 
The Object and the Beholden features work by Alan Constable, Anne Lynch, Kate Knight, Samantha Ashdown, Steven Ajzenberg, Valerio Ciccone, Georgia Szmerling, Chris O'Brien, Simon Paredes and Terry Williams.
