Mr Moorhouse's Garden

08 November 2007 - 06 October 2007

A window installation for Objectspace, Ben Pearce's metamorphic sculptural objects are painstakingly handmade and reminiscent of retro children's toys. Pearce suggests that these works are at once ‘solemn and lost, yet in search of each other for cues and dialogue'.

Pearce's resources are his sketchbooks and old wooden toys. Toying with the idea of metamorphosis displayed throughout childhood into adulthood, there is a relationship between the pieces which suggest that they may exist without a viewer.

Preened and polished, the works in Mr Moorhouse's Garden appear to be boasting of their features and adornments, showing off to the full extent of their polished aluminium and waxed wooden parts.
