2010 “Cabinet” John Martin Gallery London UK
“Cabinet” borrows its title from the private retreats of Humanist scholars in the Rennaissance. Subsequently it was the name given to the more elaborate spaces created to house the personal collections of some of the great art patrons from the 16th to 18th Centuries. Though I flinched from the side show wonders implied by a “Cabinet of Curiosities” for many artists the title also offered the possiability of bringing the world of science,mathematics, history as well as marvels from the natural and supernatural world into the scope of the exhibition. However, where this contemporary version differs fundamentally from its historic precedents is that the intellectual focus is with the artist rather than the collector; indeed, from the loose starting point of a single word, the whole shape of the exhibition has evolved through the ideas and suggestions of the participants.
