Found Architecture

Found Architecture assemblage for Genesis Light Magic group installation with Peer Social Artists at St John’s Church, Bethnal Green, November 2018

Sir John Soane (1753 – 1837) designed St John’s Church, built 1826 – 1828. He amassed an extraordinary collection of antiquities, architectural
models and sculptures, displayed on every surface throughout his house.

My assemblage of made and found objects is a visual dialogue with his architecture and the curation of his incredible collections, housed in the Sir John Soane Museum, London. I am particularly drawn to the suggestion that Soane curated his collections to elicit to awe, humour and the poetic in his visitors. Similarly, my installations are curated with the intention of engendering curiosity.
