The project explores the secret world of the museum taking the audience behind the scenes at the museum. The rough, carved and indexed boxes reflect the boxes in store at York Art Gallery. They are glazed with a limited palette of colours reflecting the monotony of the store rooms. The boxes are displayed on shelves and the audience is invited to curate the display. The boxes can be handled and re-arranged thus giving the audience a sense of the power of the curator.
