The things we own have a longer lifespan than we do — they are not bound by the temporary nature of sentient existence. Local photographic artist Ian Kemp explores this idea in Artefacts through two sets of photographs: the first comprising images of found objects in a found space, and the second comprising fine art-style images in a modern take on still life. The result is a curious and thought provoking work that asks viewers to ponder the fleeting and existential nature of life.
