found, bought and made objects, framed photographs
Continuing the ARKA group’s research into the sculptural possibilities of non-traditional materials, including found material scavenged and picked from the city streets, as well as materials and objects bought from discount outlets, charity shops and head shops, Votives presents a series of sculptures installed alongside two large-scale photographs.
The work inhabits a space between definitions, inspired by unauthored, incidental or accidental arrangements of detritus on the street, which the ARKA group have been photographing over the last five years.
