The Object is Alive: Matthew Darbyshire

Saturday 28 January - Sunday 14 May 2017

The Object is Alive has invited British artist Matthew Darbyshire to develop a new exhibition that actively engages with Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery and its collection, and is influenced by the work of Polish artist and theatre maker Tadeusz Kantor, who was interested in the role and status of the object.  Matthew has reimagined 14 objects from Nottingham Castle’s collections – including 18thcentury Wedgwood, 20th century studio pottery, modernist sculpture and even a grenade from the Regimental Museum. By playing with scale and devising new materials and techniques, including experimenting with different concrete formulas, he has created a series of new works exclusively for the Castle.

The Object is Alive: Matthew Darbyshire is the first in a series of exhibitions that actively explore the role of object as discussed in Kantor’s writing and artistic outputs. Funded by Arts Council England and the Henry Moore Foundation, this exhibition is part of a collaborative project with Radar at Loughborough University, and will be followed by Mike Cooter at New Walk Museum, Leicester (Winter 2017), and Giles Round at Derby Museums (Spring 2018).
