"Questioning our tendency to immediately allegorize objects through their superficial and surface qualities, Vessel interrogates the aura of objects. Each artist playfully disrupts our preconceived notions of objects’ objecthood. Through material play they transform the expected and everyday into something mysterious and magical. Like cherished childhood films where animated sorcerers bring broomsticks to life or fairies turn pumpkins into carriages, the artists of Vessel transform our immediate perceptions of inanimate things."
