Priceless is a series of images based in the sculptural practice of found art, focusing on second hand objects, in particular souvenirs, all purchased in Northern Ireland. The previous owners had chosen to sell their possessions and their memories, being viewed as no longer of value to them. The perception of the objects is challenged and subverted by being placed within a glass box, a device used in galleries as a signifier of value and worth. Here the objects acquire elevated status and after losing their intended purpose can once again be valued as art objects.
