'The exhibition presents a series of photographs  of second-hand sofas printed onto suspended double-backed white linen, ‘discarded sofas are products that once embodied ‘newness’ and luxury before becoming worn and ‘out-of-date’ as a result of human use.

The sofas are relatable symbols of the contemporary relationship between visual experience, technology and wealth within the system of global modernism where aesthetics are formed, elevated as 'taste' (often through textiles and fashion), used and thrown away.’ Ren Gregorčič, artist.

‘Discarded sofas, as objects closely linked human activity and time, are presented as sculptural consequences of human globalisation and applications of ‘taste’.’ Shannon Garrett, artist.
