Xavier Bernal Bladh – Mirrors of Wonder

“Mirrors of wonder: the museum as craft medium”

My research articulates the museum as a craft medium by displaying the outcome of an artist in residency at an imaginary museum: the Museum of Mythical Paleontology. The artist’s works employ mythical creatures as metaphors to comment on complex contemporary issues such as illegal migration, cultural identity, or gender roles.
