In Belly of Paris\, Emile Zola described the artist Claude L antier (the hero of his novel\, The Masterpiece) rearranging the meat produ cts in the window of his cousin’s butchers shop. He did this according to a n aesthetic sensibility rather than a taxonomy of meat. Chops\, confit and charcuterie were instinctively organised into a display that the painter La ntier described as his only true great work. Sales in the shop fell\, Lanti er was chastised by his cousin and he was never asked to look after the bus iness again. The focus of artistic practice had\, in fiction at least\, shi fted from a rendering of objects in a still life to an arrangement of them.

\n

Unspecific Objects questions the relationships between the art obj ect and everyday objects.  Without a focus on a particular medium or singul ar approach\, the exhibition uses works by over twenty contemporary artists that contemplate the object in order to consider art’s enduring power to t ransform.  Objects are manipulated\, composed\, constructed\, remodelled\, remade\, rendered as image\, placed\, stacked\, sculpted\, painted or simpl y offered to the viewer.  Some of the works are installed across the two si tes of the exhibition\; others present themselves as discreet objects. The cumulative effect of the works is a sustained focus on our relationship to things that surround us.
