Container

A Collaboration with Anders Gammelgaard Nielsen

At MOCA – Museum of Classical Archaeology, Cambridge, 2022

A collection of contemporary containers found in Greece, Denmark and England, installed and assembled in a wooden structure. Echoes of their ancestors printed on thin silk sways gently alongside. Overlooked and neglected these every day utensils seeks love and affection in their own time. The structure raises from the podium and replaces for a moment Apollo Belvedere who has retreated to Victoria & Albert. While on a walkabout contemporary container will challenge his beauty.
