Lewis Colburn: The Noble Amateur

The Noble Amateur

A solo exhibition by new NAPOLEON member Lewis Colburn

At best, objects make unreliable tour guides. They cannot argue with the narratives we imagine for them.  Lewis Colburn’s sculptures start from meticulous replicas of historical objects. Playing on the relationships between objects and their means of display, Colburn’s work questions how we construct and re-tell the narratives that become our histories.
