The Curious Corner
From 26 May through to 25 August 2012 The State Library of Queensland hosted The Odditoreum, a travelling exhibition from the Sydney Powerhouse Design Museum.
The Odditoreum was a very unique display featuring a selection of weird and wonderful curiosities from deep within the vaults of the Museum’s collection.
The objects were carefully selected by the Museum for their own peculiarity, creating a display of oddities not normally seen. These objects were transformed by children’s author and illustrator Shaun Tan, who created intriguing stories for each object blurring fact and fantasy.
The Curious Corner takes inspiration from this exhibition and explores fantastical narratives, curiosity and creativity.
