Until November 13, LAMB Gallery presents SORRY IT’S A MESS, WE JUST MOVED IN!, a group exhibition that explores notions of transience, impermanence and identity in everyday objects.
Curated by Roya Sachs, the show includes works by: assume vivid astro focus, Oliver Beer, Koos Buster, Patricia Camet, Christo & Jeanne-Claude, Martin Creed, Fischli & Weiss, Isa Genzken, Clara Hastrup, Mona Hatoum, Michael Landy, Fernando Otero, Laurence Owen, Rolf Sachs, Camila Sposati, Haim Steinbach, Erwin Wurm, and Studio Zimoun.
Check out below a bit about the exhibition from a fragment of its press release:
SORRY IT’S A MESS, WE JUST MOVED IN! brings to question the way in which we relate to objects, be they disposable commodities, forms of function, or treasured memories. The works play with the senses, be it through their materiality, tantalizing or familiar presence, or their purposeful representation. What objects do we consider to be disposable or valuable, irrelevant or irreplaceable? The sculpture-heavy, raw presentation unveils objects outside of their usual context. A bemusing presence pulls the viewer into a surrounding that feels entirely temporary, as though someone has just moved in.
The group show unravels these themes of temporality, of detachment and attachment of our present-day selves. In a time when technology has shrunk our physical identity and oversaturated our digital persona, are we becoming less and less attached to the physical objects that surround us, or do they have more meaning than ever before?
