Alice in process…

Instead of the question “Who is Alice?” there are now paths leading to what Alice might come to be…

Lewis Carroll by Sue Johnson

" 'Moore Adventures in Wonderland' is an installation which uncovers the unexpected connections between Lewis Carroll, famed author of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and 20th-Century poet, Marianne Moore. Johnson has created a poetic archive and a hyper-visual experience of Alice Through the Looking Glass using photography, illustration, digital collage and selected objects from the Museum’s collections. Much like early museums, the elements of the exhibition aim to represent collections, and “cabinets of wonder” but also reflect the desire to collect and in particular Moore’s propensity to hoard any variety of objects which struck her fancy. Johnson’s installation will lead the viewer on a journey through a conceptual rabbit hole, only to realize at the end of the journey that, like Alice, one hasn’t really travelled at all, but sees the surroundings in a new light."
