For this show, Barbara Knezevic presents a series of sculptural studies. These works examine the failures inherent in object-hood, and denote the chasm that often appears between the idea and its material manifestation. Objects are posited as a means of working out, a probe with which to test the viability of ideas.

Further to this the work proposes sculptural objects as carriers of psychological meaning, with a potent ability to transform. Collectively, these sculptural works present a consideration of transience; the object as temporary, fragile, unstable, vulnerable and fundamentally contested.
