Exhume | Clare Humphries exhibition
Exhume considers how personal objects can preserve the bodily trace of those who are gone.
Exhibition Friday 22 July - Sunday 14 August
Opening: Thursday 21 July, 6 - 8 pm
This exhibition considers a collection of inherited, personal objects that were left to artist Clare Humphries. On the surface the objects are ordinary belongings with little economic value, such as clothing, tools and an envelope of old photographs. But they have been transformed by death into potent relics.
Exhume considers how personal objects can preserve the bodily trace of those who are gone. It examines the residues of touch that linger on the surface of objects and that evoke the present-absence of the deceased. In a reciprocal gesture the exhibition also considers how notions of tactility can reconfigure approaches to print-based practice.
