Home brings together images and objects that awaken ideas and feelings about our sense of place.
The notion of home involves memory, history and human relationships as often embodied in material objects. This theme presents a variety of works of art which encourage us to think about how we relate to physical locations and how objects contribute to our sense of identity. Evoking delight in material creativity, Home presents familiar objects and landscapes in new and playful ways.
This theme extends to the police Court, which remains from the Centenary building's previous incarnation. In response to the building's history, works in the court room engage with issues around power and criminality.
