Cabinets of Curiosity (2007-08)
Cabinets of Curiosities, 2007-08
Exhibited at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery (Waterloo, ON) in 2008. Curated by Virginia Eichhorn.
Virginia Eichhorn wrote: "The exhibition created by Christian Bernard Singer references the intersection of European and First Nations cultures – using symbols for dances and languages as “spelled” out in the clay – and questions the European ‘cult’ of the ‘exotic. His work raises issues dealing with the dichotomies of love and money, art and value, possession and renunciation, and reflects critically on the past and current condition of museums while looking toward possibilities in the future and the mutable nature of understanding and appreciating differences in art and culture."
