Little Creature Cabinets

The cabinets are mixed media assemblages in the form of “nature morte”. Their subject matter refers to a theme made up of objects inanimate (springs, bells, pendulums, music boxes, wheels ...) and the corpses of insects or other objects representing a still life.

Interaction: The stillness of each cabinet is interrupted, brought to life in a singular sweeping movement made in close proximity by you, the visitor to each cabinet.
