Inspired by accounts of people recovering their sight, this contemporary exhibition looks at familiar objects in new ways.

In 1886, a 22-year-old woman in Lyon saw the world around her for the first time. Objects that had been instantly recognisable by touch were hard to distinguish with her new sight, and shadows appeared more concrete than solid forms.

This exhibition explores shifts in perception of objects and materials from contemporary daily life. The artists, whose works come from the David Roberts Collection of modern and contemporary art, have looked again at day-to-day objects in unexpected ways, and invite viewers to see alternative qualities and narratives within them.
