About the exhibition:
The Cup and The Saucer is an exhibition that explores the breadth of the notions of unity, separation, and individual-ism. The show seeks to discuss the metaphoric and mo-mentary divorce that takes place when a cup parts from its saucer; and, how within that moment, and that move-ment of estrangement, a single item breaks into two. A once whole object becomes two separate individuals. To learn more, click here.
