Intruiging and curious. Unexpected materials, and the ordinary, adorn the almost-bare forms. Rusted and twisted metal emerges from candy-pop porcelain suggesting a handle. Neon twine encircles draped leather, forming a drum-like surface over a curved vessel. An oven knob nestles into the aperture of a turned wooden pot. There is nothing extraneous in the combinations; these items have been seemingly destined to be collaged into their new form.


The emergent collections enables us to see that the stuff of everyday life, once rejected, still has a beauty and a value. Aimee Bollu choreographs the viewer's first encounter with the collection exceptionally. The influence of the wunderkammer on her display is evident, but whereas those early cabinets of curiosity exposed completely novel and unusual things, this display offers a glimpse of something familiar, something already known, with tantalising, uncanny undertones.
