A modern take on the cabinet of curiosities

Wed 6 Sep - Sat 7 Oct

Kist in Thyme

Story-led art created as part of a collaboration between two primary schools, community elders and storyteller/artist Amanda Edmiston. The exhibition contains photographs and several hand written framed pieces chronicling the project and the stories used, plus the Kist itself - a wooden box full of herbal elements, stories and creations made by the children and influenced by the 'cabinet of curiosities' popular in the 16th and 17th centuries. Funded by Tasgadh - Small Grants for Traditional Arts and developed using the Tobar an Dualchais archive.
