An exhibition of paper work from artists around the UK Louise Atkinson Julie Caves Katherine Johnson and Stacey Allen Steffan Jones- Hughes Simon Lewandowski Victoria Lucas Andy SingletonWhy do we feel the need to archive, to save, to cut out, and to keep? What drives us to accumulate, record and assemble? Collect is an exhibition that features the loved object created using paper based materials. The artists selected are all concerned with the passionate interest we have for personal possessions, and the objects of the everyday. Collections are extraordinary instruments that allow us to learn about the civilisations we live in, past and present. They allow us to rationalise the passage of time, putting our fears surrounding the constant loss time demands temporarily at rest. Most of all they tell us something about ourselves, allowing us to place ourselves in the real, to remember, and to make ourselves feel more alive. COLLECT is a free exhibition. It opens on 27th January 2010 from 5-9pm.… is a free exhibition. It opens on 27th January 2010 from 5-9pm.
