Monument de curiosités

Monument de curiosités, 2014

Collage by Elvire Amoura

This work was conceived as a project for the Natural History Museum of Milan.

Strange and dusty objects accumulate in this unique space, wholly isolated form the everyday world outside. The visitor crosses a threshold, leaving behind the city to enter a silent, immobile universe. Slowly and attentively, they make their way through the skeletons, jars, minerals, taxidermied animals and other scientific curiosities that are displayed like so many works of art. Behind protective glass, on plinths, or lining the walls, these specimens witness the slow evolution of species. The visitor wanders through these different spaces, with no two appearing alike. The great scientific exhibition fixes and dissects within its walls the life which continues apace outside. Here and there, large windows superpose these two temporalities. A few hours spent in the museum seem brief, and upon exiting the visitor must adapt to the light as they did upon entering. Walking away and leaving behind the cavernous building filled with static objects, they once again find the reassuring rhythm of everyday life.

DIBOND MOUNTING FRAME

A very ‘clean’ look when the work is hung, as it is mounted directly on 3mm Dibond; the wooden stretcher frame sets the work away from the wall. The work is printed on anti-UV, anti-aging and anti-smudge art papers, meaning that it needs no glass to protect it. Available for all formats.
