The familiar analogy of ‘Trigger’s broom’ from ‘Only Fools and Horses’ demonstrates the common ground shared by the artists, that of the concept being as important as the ‘objects’ they make. Trigger reveals that he has owned the same broom for 20 years but in that time it has had 17 new heads and 14 new handles. This in turn relates to the concept of Walter Benjamin in respect of the ‘aura’ and authenticity in art and subsequently Theodor Adorno’s theory of art work as being something other than a thing. Throughout the MA the students have looked critically at their role as artists and engaged with the expanding discourses of art practice today.
