A coin purse and a set of dentures may be remarkably unremarkable objects in your everyday life, but Un-Think by Nancy Fouts aims to change the way you consider them. By fusing two unrelated items together into something new, the artist asserts that she's not attempting to make a statement so much as to provoke thought in her audience.

Though butterflies and darts are incredibly different things, this, among other pieces shows how natural they look as a hybrid form. Perhaps you've never seen "Bastard" written in flowers next to a coffin before, but could you argue that the artwork is not a rousing reconsideration of each individual element?

Items like the unusual tooth-bristled toothbrush and the rabbit with curlers are being shown together in the exhibition called Un-Think by Nancy Fouts at a London gallery.
