This Place in My Bones

The work honours the mundane, the found object, therefore the display for I Feel This Place in My Bones values, and is accessible to, the viewers’ daily life. The Wunderkammer realises this concept- habitually we curate our lives through the objects we choose to surround ourselves with, as reflected in our common accumulation of souvenirs and memorabilia. Self-hood is expressed through the curation of collections and these are presented to the viewer as they envision the contents of their own curiosity cabinet.
