The Campaign for Objects in Purgatory is a creative project that peeks into the hidden corners of our homes to find out how we live with our possessions.

Uncherished giftsare a great subject for discussion. As much as wefeel impelled to keep them,wewant to rid ourselves of them. They make us feel uncomfortable, and this is reflected in how and where we keep them. They can be found concealed among other objects in mantle piece displays, or buried in the back of a cupboard so that we don't encounter them too often.

Where do you keep yours? How do you feel about it? Do you think you'll throw it away one day?
