Linny Venables’ work centres on the playful transformation of exhausted materials through ascribing them a new status being absurd, vacuous or oblique.  By incorporating such commonplace objects she aims to liberate them from the drudgery of service and openly flout the conventional, predictable, earth-bound solidity of normal objecthood.
