Artists have been using everyday objects in their work for over 100 years, turning banal objects into works of art either in their original state or in adapted forms. This playful approach to contemporary art can also be extended to the quintessential everyday object: the human body; an object that we all own and can be used to initiate, create and facilitate creative expression. By working with everyday objects and the human body in this way, artists offer viewers accessible and identifiable ways to engage with contemporary practice.
