This residency will see Perth artist and designer Amy Perejuan-Capone examine the ‘cabinet’ from the point of view of the ‘Wunderkammer’ (cabinet of curiosities or ‘memory theatre’) and how this relates to the power and agency of objects. Interested in exploring how this is relevant to the spectrum between hoarding and collecting, her project will produce a wunderkammer that is the result of her prolonged engagement with museum spaces, PICA, personal collections/hoards, trade-shows, trainspotters, and Fremantle Harbour with the intention of provoking a kind of object-empathy in the audience.
