exhibits sculptures that assert non-site-specific, self-contained objects. Daveys sculptures refer ambiguously to objects from everyday life, yet the fact that they have obviously been made by the artist suggests that the works keep their distance from the kind of neo-Dadaism, or neo-Popism, which is prevalent in the work of other young British artists.The viewer is challenged to see beyond difference and explore the relationships between pairs. Some objects are "self-dual", others vary enormously, yet their relationship remains the same. Along the way there are hints and nuanced details that move the work out of the abstract realm and into the human one. Although inspired by and founded on the T-duality notion in string theory, this work is not constrained by that, and in that sense it also reflects a response of an outsider to the exotic academic environment of contemporary theoretical physics.
