Cabinet of Curiosities, Room of Wonder. An exhibition at Newcastle Museum & Art Gallery

by Chantal

12th January-10th March

“The museum will be recreating our very own ‘Room of Wonder’ featuring the weird and wonderful items the museum holds in its geology, ethnography and archaeology collections.
This is a rare chance to see weapons, costumes from other cultures and mystery objects usually tucked away in the storerooms.

To compliment this collections exhibition, we will also be exhibiting contemporary art work, which explores the concept of Cabinets of Curiosity & Rooms of Wonder. Work which provoke a sense of curiosity and surprise, work which is slightly macabre and leaves the viewer with a slight sense of wonder and awe.”

I’m pleased to have been invited to display my three barometer works from the “Effects of the Earth’s Motions” series in this exhibition.
