Curiosity Cabinets contained the most rare, exotic and strange. They were filled with artifacts of mystery, magnificent specimens, handmade books, drawings and prints, exceptional examples of nature and science, investigations into the bizarre and unknown as well cultural items collected from far away lands.
Artists are needed to create the contents of a drawer of curiosities for our WUNDERKAMMER CABINET Exhibition.
For our Curiosity Cabinet we ask you to examine the world around you. Explore the unknown or undiscovered. . Use your investigative spirit. Make/create your own curiosities, specimens and books. Demonstrate your hidden knowledge. Display your artifact with a handmade book from your real or imagined travels abroad.
Each artist will create a handmade curiosity or collection that is self-contained within his or her drawer housed in an antique 140-drawer cabinet at KOZO Studio.
