“The Curiosity of Cabinets” Liisa Hyyrynen, 2009

““The Curiosity of Cabinets” incorporates found jewellery boxes, biscuit tins, and other containers with historical cabinet silhouettes, creating unconventional and theatrical pieces of furniture. As an antidote to contemporary storage furniture, where the function is to fit a maximum amount of things into a minimum amount of space, these pieces enhance the value of the objects being stored as well as the found boxes used, through the creation of an experience of storing.”

“Curiosity Cabinet” Gudrun Lilja Gunnlaugsdottir

“Curiosity Cabinet is part of a project called “A soul of my nation” where I have taken real life characters, who I have had the pleasure of getting to know, and transform them, symbolically, into objects that derive from their personality.”
