When we exhibit that which we collect, we reveal as much –or even more– about ourselves than we do about our objects. Our obsessions, fetishes and concerns are reflected in the small collection of apparently useless objects that have been carefully gathered since our childhood.

Stilleven takes the private realm into the public one; its wool display can highlight that which we treasure under the clear protection of a glass covering, while a small desk made out of walnut allows us to take a break from our day-to-day in order to catalogue the contents of the mind; the reflections on the mirror are a reminder of our surroundings.

A profound piece with a practical use.
