Chan's Cabinet of Curiosities

Chan’s Cabinet of Curiosities is an art-craft-social experiment, which explores the presentation and re-presentation of contemporary craft within an institution. By acting as a curator/ artist/ craftswoman/ hobby collector all in one, I have created my own museum (or cabinet of curiosities) out of ceramic objects that I have personally handmade and/or handpicked. This project is presented like any other art object within a museum, but differs in that for 30 minutes of each day, the public will be allowed to trade their own ceramic object with an object in my cabinet. The catch is that they must be of equal value.
Chan’s Cabinet of Curiosities is a travelling exhibition, as material culture differs when one crosses borders and social settings.
