    An assemblage of long stem wine glasses, carafes, and glassware capture colourful light reflections on a black background. This limited-edition photograph was produced by Corin Sworn to accompany her solo exhibition The Rag Papers at Chisenhale Gallery, London, in 2013. The Rag Papers introduced specially commissioned work exploring the nature of attention, reuse and appropriation; comprising a film and installation with synchronised lighting and sound. The film presented the perspectives of three characters who interact with a series of objects set within carefully designed domestic interiors. Objects play a central role in the film, almost as characters in their own right. The Slow Liquidity of Glass captures one of those moments in the movie sequence. Sworn lives and works in Glasgow and was awarded the Max Mara Art Prize for Women in 2014.
