A closer look at Kiki Smith’s Cabinet of Curiosities

Kiki Smith’s exhibition I am a Wanderer features a Wünderkammer, ‘a cabinet of curiosities,’ which contains a strange array of forms and materials, both human and animal. Among this curious collection are a glass frog, a porcelain dead cat, a silver shooting star and a bat cast in bronze with piercing ruby eyes.

Watch curator Stephanie Straine offering insights into these remarkable small sculptures and the history of the cabinet of curiosities.
