Hermaion: Happy Accident, Lucky Find

New exhibition of works by Amanda Schiff 
3 July - 28 August 2015

Like a modern-day mudlark, the artist, writer and filmmaker Amanda Schiff spends her days trawling for the lost and found. Using abandoned objects, images and texts, she creates assemblages that evoke ambiguous and unsettling narratives.

Schiff's new exhibition, 'HERMAION', explores her fascination with things that have survived 'by chance or miracle'. The exhibition, installed within a domestic setting in an 18th century Huguenot silk weaver's house, takes its name from the gift of Hermes, the trickster god of the Greeks. Hermaion is the lucky find, the happy accident, the unexpected windfall. It describes both Schiff's imaginative process in making the work and the surprising results.

Using orphaned objects, whose makers are almost certainly long dead and whose purpose is outworn or forgotten, Schiff conjures up fictional narratives, encapsulating them within one-of-a-kind boxes.
