Whether strange or familiar, inanimate objects have always fascinated photographers, who over the past ten years have been more and more active in staging them. The “Dream Objects” exhibition explores the many ways contemporary photographers isolate, twist, transform, and glorify everyday objects. By playing with forms, blurring the lines between dream and reality, artists uncover the often strange connections that we form with these objects; objects that say so much about us as people. Artists reestablish the importance of these objects in an increasingly virtual world, and reconnect us with these tangible testaments to, and guarantors of, our collective memory.
