Main Gallery Exhibition
Saturday 26 March - Sunday 2 October
Andrew Miller is an artist whose practice investigates the function and non-function of objects. He is motivated by a fascination with our relationship to objects and how we encounter them. In his recent work Andrew Miller considers how discarded or damaged objects are reappropriated through human interventions to create new and inventive objects which function under a different guise. A major element of the exhibition explores work originating from glass found in charity shops. These pieces may once have been the height of good taste or perhaps their emotional value to the original owner was important. Later in the life of the object perceptions of value are reduced to cheap, secondhand trinkets. Andrew Miller changes their status and perceived value again through his work.
