William Morris wrote that the true secret to happiness lies in taking a genuine interest in all the details of daily life (William Morris, The Aims of Art, 1887). What does this mean? Morris was a strong advocate for the idea that the mundane should be elevated to art rather than being relegated to the dreary, disregarded “drudges”. But his words also encourage reflection on the concept of particulars. What is the value of narrowing in on the details? We often consider it more important to look at the big picture, but how does this impact our tendency to miss the small things along the way? Through a presentation of small details cherished by individual artists, this exhibition invites the viewer to partake and reflect on the elements that contribute to the larger narrative of our lives.
