"pieces"

Each fragment of architecture, art and interior feature collected by Sir John Soane and displayed in his museum draws an incomplete yet intriguing picture of the whole. They seem to be able to embody something significantly bigger than its size, inviting us to speculate, imagine and eventually form our own versions of what they are. These objects are kind of short quotations from different places, ready to be reused, interpreted or sometimes misused. The exhibition explores the idea of how an incomplete could shape the complete.
Taking place at No.12 Breakfast Room and the Crypt area of Sir John Soane's Museum, each work presented is a suggestion or a proposition of how we might make sense of something bigger through something small, insignificant or fragmentary.

Participants:
Paul Elliman, Gemma Holt, Sam Jacob, Peter Marigold and Study O Portable.
