Half Belief
Howard Gardens Gallery, UWIC, Cardiff

The purpose and significance of plinths, supports, tables and chairs have been upended, sometimes metaphorically and often phsycally, to interrupt commonplace readings of things and their signicance. Each object falls between its value as purpose, symbol and metaphor. The modernist structure of a white cube is entangled with a chicken coop, while the plinth becomes an elaborate hen house. A table tennis table game is set up on a kitchen table, the net postioned for a particularly loaded game.
