Gold is the ultimate status symbol which resonates across history and all cultures.

In this exhibition valuable gold fob watches and lavish candelabra sit alongside gloriously cheap nick-nacks from the Two Dollar Shop. Meticulously printed on hand-gilded paper, Scott bestows an elegance on the enduring and the disposable, the real and fake.

The playful interchange of Scott’s ‘pick-andmix’ aesthetic exposed the folly of equating good taste with social status.
