 Leanne Failla: A Collection of Objects to Retain



This exhibition, 'A collection of objects to retain from a collection of objects to discard' is a continuing exploration of objects and their role in forming scenario.

Leanne Failla's work focuses on how event (with reference to Deleuze's fold) is constructed and the significance of anchor points in the perception of influence in creating event. Using physical objects to reference anchor points the work seeks the intangible aspects of event to address how heavily their presence defines a reading of situation.

In earlier work, objects were related to function, design and volume. Personal narrative comes into play in the new work as the artist chooses a selection of objects she owns to hold onto and replicates their form using other objects in her possession. The resulting forms are displayed in the gallery environment as new art objects which hold the value of 'discard' and 'retain'.
