With origins in, and inspiration from a second-hand market, this exhibition uses the chance encounters with the materials and objects, the vernacular forms and structures found there to influence and instigate an artistic practice based in sculpture.
The market presents an alternative and uncomplicated display of commerce and trade where objects, goods and materials are exchanged and circulated for cash and coins, trash and treasure, rags to riches. It sits at a meeting place, between what is local and what is brought to that location. The market place assembles typologies of objects and materials, things that point to elsewhere and some-time past.
The artistic strategies for Market Values incorporate dual actions of finding and making, of repeated handling or hand making, soldering physical connections between a world of retrieved objects and sculpture and their apparatus for display.
