A contributing exhibition to the group show, House of Fairy Tales Exquisite Trove.
Exquisite Trove is a collaboration between The House of Fairy Tales and Newlyn Art Gallery, with artist Hadrian Pigott. Inspired by cabinets of curiosities or Wunderkammer, this exhibition is an exploration of the human desire to collect, display and tell stories with objects and images. They reflect our personal histories and a fascination with the imagined lives of others.
The exhibition is an amalgamation of the House of Fairy Tales' touring collection of significant and treasured items from artists, and an eclectic selection of strange and wonderful objects loaned from 10 local museums. The combination of artwork, treasured possessions and museum artefacts provokes fascinating and intriguing interpretations.
