Free Castle Visit Number Two (Part Two)

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled

This is one of my favourite displays in the castle museum. I can't get enough of neatly organised collections.
It's a piece by Julian Walker that the castle commissioned. "Underneath each object is the hand written name of a person who was imprisoned in Norwich Castle during it's long history as a prison.
The work makes a link between the objects held in the museum and the individuals imprisoned in Norwich Castle.
Each object has been carefully selected to reflect the diversity of the collections at Norwich Castle: archaeology, natural history, fine and decorative art are all represented.
Yet each of the objects is flawed in some way and would struggle to find a place in the museum's collection. Walker has created a cabinet of comprised curiosities."

Comprised curiosities. I like them.
