This is a portable cabinet of wonders, a monument to our inexhaustible curiosity about the world and our need to explore it by gathering objects which are precious, irregular and emblematic. Every life is an encyclopedia, dominated by an endless chaotic order.
By first considering historical precedents, we imagine a traveling wunderkammer, more like an atlas than a museum, a piece of luggage both useless and essential, constantly changing. This lightweight collection seeks to capture a whole which is potential, conceptual, multiple and decorative all at once.
In occasion of this 55th International Art Exhibition, aka Biennale we made an encyclopedic installation for Madera, a fine design shop in Venezia. Take a look if you came here during the summertime. You can find it in Campo san Barnaba, not far from Campo santa Margherita and Accademia.
