The Influence of Furniture on Love

13 Sep 2014–2 Nov 2014

Overview

The Influence of Furniture on Love is an exhibition in Wysing Arts Centre’s 17th century farmhouse. The title of the exhibition is taken from an unpublished essay by economist John Maynard Keynes entitled “Can we consume our surplus or the influence of furniture on love” (1909), a handwritten copy of which is held in the archives of King’s College at the University of Cambridge. In the essay, Keynes discusses whether it is possible for the rooms within which we live to “suggest to us thoughts and feelings and occupations?” With An Endless Supply, Ruth Beale, Juliette Blightman, Ben Brierley, Céline Condorelli, Luca Frei, Seb Patane, Florian Roithmayr, Phil Root, Laure Prouvost, Cally Spooner, The Grantchester Pottery, Philomene Pirecki, Elizabeth Price, Jess Flood-Paddock, Gil Leung, Mark Aerial Waller, Neal White and Lisa Wilkens. Include three dinners hosted by artists in the exhibition. See website for booking details.
