Objectomania Animal Museum – Object art installation

This installation was on display for two months in 2005 in the Kunstenlab in Deventer

The starting point was a kind of object zoological museum in which endangered object animals were shown in their natural environment.
Most of the animals can be seen on the photo page and also the making-of. In addition to the animals in the forest decor, a black and white video was also shown in which the objects were shown with their location, character traits and further description. In the room a jungle soundscape composed of the sounds of the objects could be heard.

The exhibition also included an educational program for primary school children. They were allowed to enter in groups of 5, and afterwards were given a workshop by artists from the Kunstenlab where they could, for example, make animals with found objects and were given writing and drawing assignments.
