About Artist: Matthew Darbyshire provocatively repackages the homogenisation of contemporary design: the moulded retro-future furnishings and CMYK colour schemes that dominate both public and private space. Democratised from minimalist couture chic to high-street decor to budget home-ware chintz, Darbyshire’s assembled objects try to define just what it is that makes candy-coloured plastic so modern, so appealing. Replicating a domestic display, Untitled: Shelves No. 5 presents a collection of purchased goods: a Verner Panton miniature and a bong, religious icons and cocktail glasses, all fabricated in the same style, the numbing yet infinitely seductive hallmark of lifestyle aspiration.
