Collector’s Corner – Judith Alder
Each month we invite a different collector to share their collection in the gallery.
During this Collector’s Corner event Judith will be showing a selection of objects from her own collections of found, made and gathered artefacts from projects which have taken place over the last 15 years.
Throughout her career as an artist Judith’s work has often developed as collections of objects, drawings, artefacts, books and photographs, sometimes shown in cabinets or display cases, or as pseudo-scientific installations. These works have been inspired by the great Victorian collectors, whose collections form the foundation of many museums of science and nature.
Judith’s interest in these collections is further heightened by the strange juxtapositions often found within these cabinets of curiosity and the difficulty in identifying genuine specimens from the fabricated or faked.
