Employing sculpture, video and photographs, British artist Jess Flood-Paddock (b.1977) explores the exchange value of objects, and more specifically their emotional value. Working across a truly heterogeneous range of subjects - from Aztec fertility statues to wasabi peanut snacks - Flood-Paddock creates interwoven narratives, most often non-linear, which could be described as the 'biographical life of things'.
