Northern Art Prize

I went to Leeds Art Gallery to look at the Northern Art Prize exhibition. The pieces of work that I was most interested in were by Richard Rigg. He ‘manipulates everyday objects, turning them into theoretical conundrums or playful propositions. He asks us to look at the everyday again from a simple wall hook to desks or chairs, interrogating the familiar and its surrounds’.

‘Some Rest on Six Occasions’ and ‘Two Writing Desks, False Drawer’ were the works that I was most intrigued by as the rearrangement of the chairs and tables and the different joints of the chairs were playful and add a different element to them.
