This exhibition brings together four artists who manipulate and question systems and structures, using their own material and conceptual practices. In their choice of found objects and other materials, these artists arrive at visually accessible outcomes through their respective processes. The ideas explored in this exhibition call up religious, monetary, and social themes that overlap both visually and conceptually. Why have these artists chosen to manipulate these objects and how does this work to manipulate the ideological systems and structures that the original objects represent?
