In the second iteration of Fisher and de Cordova’s on-going collaboration, trains of thought become short stories, which in their interconnectedness create a wider matrix of narratives. Imagery in the form of toys as objects, objects as toys, children’s book motifs and strange landscapes, suggestive of folklore and myth, seems to dwell in the uncanny realm of dreams; closer examination reveals an exploration of sexual identity and the human condition. Taking these signals, the viewer is invited to participate in a private excursion of imagining, or perhaps, instead, to investigate further the artists’ own sub-textual interrogations. The exhibition included sculptures, paintings, prints embroideries and objects, and was partly presented in five glass cabinets.
