Karen Ingham: Wonder Chamber
The Wunderkammer, or Wonder Chamber, is related to and at times synonymous with the Kunstkammer (art chamber) and Cabinet of Curiosity. Wonder Chamber encapsulates the interdisciplinary nature of Ingham's practice which embraces natural history, medical science, art history, museology, theatrical spectacle and lens-based media (the notion of the chamber, or camera, to quote the Latin origins, being inscribed in photography through the camera obscura, or âdarkened room'). In particular, Ingham is concerned with notions of layering and concealing and revealing dichotomous states through optical science and illusion. Wonder Chamber and its accompanying publication, acts as an imaginary museum bringing together many of the key works Ingham has been developing over the past few years.
