Wunderkammer

Works by Marli Davis, Elizabeth DeCoste, Laur Flom, Em Moor.

Sep 06 - Oct 09
Weekdays: 8am - 7pm, Sat & Sun: 12 - 6pm
Reception: Sep 28: 4 - 6pm

Exploring the storytelling abilities of collections, the artists in Wunderkammer repurpose the scientific method as a means of self-discovery. By appropriating methodologies from a rich historical exhibition tradition, the artists use the aesthetics of scientific classification and museum display to draw attention to gaps and erasures within collection practices. As such they are able to re-tell histories, establishing an alternative form of storytelling to the dominating Western practices of display and classification, without writing off those practices entirely. Artists Laur Flom, Elizabeth DeCoste, Em Moor, and Marli Davis draw us into their worlds with installation, video, and archives filled with detritus and memorabilia. These works poke fun at the glorifying potential of the fantastical collector, showing us that it is not the individual objects that are deserving of the title ‘artifact’, but their personal and collective significance which offers us a genealogical path toward introspection.
