A short summary of our projects

WUNDERKAMMER: Cabinet of Curiosity will open at The University of Kent’s Studio 3 Gallery in October 2016. The exhibition explores the traditional themes of cabinets of curiosities by investigating the liminal states between life and death and art, science and wonder.  To completely transform the large white-cube gallery space, a 5m x 5m cabinet of curiosity will be built within the gallery. Historical forms of display are juxtaposed with modern artworks to provide viewers with an innovative, intimate and immersive experience. The £400 will be needed for constructing the exhibition. 

Who we are 

We are postgraduate students studying Curating at the University of Kent. Our team members come from different backgrounds, but we are all enthusiastic about sharing an immersive and thought-provoking experience through our exhibition. We’ve explored the theme of cabinets of curiosity cooperatively from the beginning of our course, and now we want to build our own in Studio 3 Gallery. We have limited funds, so we are asking for donations from people who want to support this project.

The £400 will be used for completely reconfiguring the gallery and constructing the cabinet of curiosity.
