The inestimable gravity of small things

My View /  Robyn Sassen |  Hunter-Gatherer is an exhibition about what art is in our throwaway culture. … It’s a deep and bold exhibition, but one that on the surface is demure as it is almost elegant. It’s an important exhibition, which … reveals an engagement with the world which is unique and beautiful as it is audacious.

When the post-consumerist world is so meticulously and earnestly explored as it is here, something magical happens and the time invested in each bit of human detritus lends it a solemn value, but one not unspiced with self-deprecation and utter levity.
