The inspiration for my art practice comes from collections, those of museums, eccentric 'collectaholics', or merely the accumulations of everyday life. From these, I seek to create installations for museums and galleries which stimulate curiosity and imagination through the juxtaposition of objects.
This paper investigates how museums have evolved into educational establishments, with less emphasis on their role as a place of wonder, and how artists have appropriated the concept of the vitrine, or glass cabinet, to endow the ordinary with a sense of fascination, authority and worth.
