Mobility

Jason Kerley is a collector. For his show Mobility, Kerley presents collections within a collection.

at Picnic Gallery

The objects Jason Kerleyhas chosen are drawn from all sorts of places: cheap toys and balloons, creative commons clip art, cartoon eyes and flowers. Through manipulating these objects Kerley explores the reproduction of real things, to create new, fake things. These fake things ultimately become their own thing, and take on a new strange identity detached from the original.

As objects they functions as copies, but as sculptures they function as a still life. They are given a new higher status now that they’re in the gallery.

Mobility questions the new symbolism of these objects now that they are displayed as ‘art’.
