Chelsea Cafe Project: #6 by Rebecca Rendell

Display #: 6 by Rebecca Rendell

This exhibition consists of a series of works made in response to the taxonomic library environment. Rendell’s work usually consists of found objects and lost articles, often scavenged from antique markets, in the dirt of the Thames, the drought of the desert and on this occasion; from within the pages of the Chelsea library collection. Lost and forgotten ephemera is transformed to shine fresh light onto the habits and effects of the human condition.
