Reliant Objects is a group exhibition of interdisciplinary craft work challenging notions of form, function, and the future of domestic objects. The works in this exhibition rely upon a viewer’s recognition of their sameness and difference, in the ability to seek meaning in material and formal digressions from everyday familiarity. In their multiplicity, augmentation, or fragmentation, these works act as a mirror, allowing the viewer to recognize themselves in disparate and unfamiliar parts and pieces.
