While ‘knowing’ suggests a fixed, established set of facts, ‘curiosity’ alludes to a perceptive and evolving inquiry. It is an open curiosity about the world, our connection to it and to each other that feeds the works in this exhibition. The works in Refiguring Worlds are anchored with references to traditional systems for knowledge and understanding –taxonomies, categorisation, documentation – but use these points of familiarity as a means to venture to more surreal, freely unchartered realms. In the process, we are invited to undo what we think we know about objects and representations of the natural world, allowing for new material and ecological narratives to emerge.
