childish things

Put Away Childish Things? invites its viewers to engage with the works as potential toys or games, to imaginatively unravel the rules by which the (Art) objects have come into being and might be read, or to toy with the potential ways with which they might be played. Treat the exhibition like receiving a board game with the rules missing; how will you play it? Do you make up your own rules and assign functions to the pieces you have been given? Do you attempt to derive the rules from the pieces provided? Or would you deploy those pieces imaginatively? Or, like a small child, you might refuse to name things and, instead, respond to their inherent sensory properties. All three artists’ work builds on forms and structures that echo those of toys and games.
