Terry Border: Bent Objects

Indianapolis artist Terry Border turns everyday objects into works of art by giving them “human” forms and personalities. Border animates these formerly mundane objects (such as food, toys, and household items) in light-hearted ways that help viewers relate to these “Bent Objects.”

They'll be on exhibit in the Art Gallery in the Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center at University of Indianapolis, 1400 East Hanna Avenue, Indianapolis 17 January through 11 February.

The exhibition, open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., is based on Border’s book Bent Objects: The Secret Life of Everyday Things.

Some of his objects are pictured here, and you can see more samples of his work on You Tube.
