Be-hind, Be-fore & Be-yond
Filmer’s first solo show exhibited pieces made of glass, ceramic, ice, silver and soap. The materials explored the interaction between the intrinsic preciousness of objects and their attributed value. Some of the pieces were solely for exhibition while others were to be bought and worn. The collection explicitly alluded to the intimacy of the body and its adornment: locating pieces behind the ear, under the chin, under the arm and on the inside of the forearm.
