The Wunderkammer or room of curiosities, is the name that was given to the relics and objects of natural history that were presented in museums and cultural spaces in the sixteenth century. In this case, the exhibition refers to the spectacle of the inane, the sensation of the obvious, or the hidden gem.

In a time when the art world is replete with commodification, appropriation and desperation, the Wunderkammer exhibition is an effort to rekindle our fascination with the curious and the curiouser, redefining our notion of mysticism, memory and questioning into the realm of universal memories and carefully considered outcomes.
