Le Cabinet de Curiosites de Mademoiselle Clouette is an exhibition of Shelagh Cluett's collection and work. This publication guides the viewer through the artefacts and ephemera collected on her epic travels over 25 years in Asia.
Taking an ethnographic turn, the aim is to illustrate, through 'things' rather than ideas, how displacement and documentation influence art practice. Juxtaposed with a selection of Cluett's own smaller sculptures to evoke both formal and conceptual affinities, these objects act as agents of partial connections within an ideal contact zone for transcultural exchange: a library.
