I am currently reworking the the show for Platform gallery in Clitheroe 29th July – 8th Oct. I’m hoping to call it Everyday Objects : More of the same – but with some new work…
The project that went on and on… Since 2013 Everyday objects the touring show has been to 7 galleries around England and I have had the opportunity to develop it each time. A big thank you must go to 20-21 Gallery Scunthorpe for there support and agreeing to turn it into a touring exhibition. I would also like thank Barnsley Civic Gallery and The Harley Gallery for supporting new work.
Its been a fantastic way of developing my work and tapping into this big database of little ideas. I’m going to kick start this blog and catch you up with things that were developed from the project – if that’s ok….
So here it is last object of 2012 (not worth waiting for) but I thought It would be fun to revisit the hot water bottle that I started with all those days ago. I hope you have enjoyed looking at my madcap adventure into playing with the mundane. It’s been fun, hard, exhilarating and confusing, etc… So I will try and continue the odd thing here to keep you amused. If you want 366 objects then add the ones in extra pics… An exhibition of these objects starts 13th January in Scunthorpe At 20 21 Gallery. Thankyou for checking in and your support over the year. All the best for for 2013, regards Jason.
I’ve always found some gems in the Tesco value range. Today I had to buy this Jotter note book – as well as being really thin it also has a brilliant bland cover with ‘Our promise’ of happy to refund or replace any product that falls below the high standard you expect – I so wished it had 49 sheets! Anyway it became an ‘everyday object’ to add to my very own value range…
Been playing with this idea for too long for project Junkstop and now nearly complete… it will join two more sets to complete the sculpture and go outside for the two week New Mills Festival. It started out as a tree but then I thought of the pun on fountain and I think it’s more fitting. 63 cans in this one.
So this is a return of #114 as it was originally taped, I wanted a nice way of fixing it together to make more for a sculpture. So I thought I would get them welded but needed a jig, after much huffing & puffing I discovered they fit very nicely into a Roses sweet tin which seems like a pleasing solution..Tin Can
A drinks can as a windmill, I used a coat hanger to make it…. not exactly a revelation but my son said “dad, you made that without buying anything” drinkscan
Electrical cord? So the bungee cord reminded me of the cord on the iron. I had already chopped off one end, so it made sense to stick it in a plug…. This has taken me back to a few years ago when I was playing with the idea of electrical sockets being more mechanical… A plug in hook maybe? electricplug
