Gallery manager Paris Neilson says the double-take theme works on two levels. "Where people have seen an artwork before, they'll see it in a new context this time, and that will add a whole new dimension. And with all the works we've chosen, there's a sense of 'This isn't what it seems to be.' You think, 'Hang on, what did I just see?' And you look again."
