Museological Installation
Esplanade Stage, Helsinki
1.4. – 20.4. 1997

About

Anatomical Cabinet (1997) is an installation which looks like a museum, but closer view reveals something disturbing. Anatomical pieces, skeletons have something wrong – parts are missing and wholenes does not build story according to accepted biological truths. It is a personal view on nature and museological science. What does an orange doing with dinosaurs?

Museum is based on my own collection of anatomical objects. Part of it are found and other part I have made my self for photographic purposes (Excavation project).
