Object 77b brings to the space new and recent works by Ludvig Gustafsson, Felicity Hammond and Anna Reading. The exhibition borrows its title from the 1971 book Roadside Picnic by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. This Russian science fiction novel is about humans dealing with strange artefacts left on Earth after a mysterious alien visit, and depicts a world that is coarse, hopeless and in a chronic state of social decay. Exhibiting together for the first time these artists reflect upon similar tropes whilst remaining distinct in their approach to material and the context of their surroundings.

Dialogues with A Collection presents a stage of relationships between artists and the collection of Laure Genillard. Eleven artists have been invited to engage with different works from the collection with either a newly constructed or an existing work, creating a trail of impromptu correspondences across the gallery space.
The collection on display is symptomatic of the gallery’s thirty-year history and the artist-gallery kinships that ensued, along with other acquisitions independent of the gallery programme. Together the collection and their chosen correspondents represent the aesthetic and conceptual ethos of the Laure Genillard Gallery and readdress the desire to test art’s ability to be both communicative and autonomous.
