Artist Statement:

    Wunderkammer is a multi-screen installation work representing a magical cabinet of curiosity. Strange and wondrous objects appear within the cabinet frame of video screens and are animated alive. A Wunderkammer is a Cabinet of Curiousity and wonder. Beginning in the 16th century, Wunderkammer were a precursor to the modern museum and displayed a random assortment of collected objects ranging from natural history, geology, archeology and cultural artifacts. The objects were organized in wooden cabinets and drawers of various scales. Some collections contain surreal and strange objects that are unknown or unclassifiable.

    Wunderkammer by Allison Moore, as part of a Call for projects in partnership with the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec and the Société de la Place des Arts de Montréal. In response to the recent COVID-19 health regulations and recommendations in Montreal, the ISEA2020 Exhibition at the Maison de la culture Janine-Sutto is cancelled.
