Still Life: Things Devouring Time

An exhibition exploring consumer culture and social, environmental and sustainability issues relevant today. Bringing together contemporary still life artwork and historic Dutch still life paintings.

Through the medium of still life this exhibition looks at things made from non-biodegradable materials and people’s inclination to collect possessions. It explore how these behaviours contradict the concept of "tempus edax rerum" – time as devourer of all things.

The exhibition is co-curated by Dr Dawn Woolley (Leeds Arts University), and is generously supported by Leeds Arts University.
