In a world where (it seems) we can access all knowledge digitally, this series allows us to get lost in the universe of Ramsey Nasr, in his wonderful cabinet of curiosities. No place in his house is empty: wherever you look there is lichens, fossils, stuffed animals, encyclopedias, hand axes, prints, photography, music and books. What’s the source of his fascination? Is there any limit in what he collects? Is a collection ever 'finished'?
His self-created world holds a mirror to the viewer: how do we relate to the past?
