Events at this Venue


Through images of toys and objects that we take for granted Robin MacFarlan’s ‘views from a playroom’ are views on life in which the roles of toys, objects and people are interchangeable. In scenes that are simultaneously natural and ludicrous, toys that were once our playthings now play with us – as they laugh and joke and quietly mock the behaviour of the adults we have since become.
