Save Event: Specere

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Specere is a culmination of photographic-based works by Alexandra Murphy exploring natural history museum collections in the UK.


The projects produced over the past ten years explore potential connections between metapsychology, museology and photography - between Todestrieb or death-drive (Sigmund Freud), decay and possibilities of defiance in attempts to preserve the past. ‘specere’ is the Latin root word for common words such as: specimen; spectacle; species – all words relevant to my research, thus Specere becomes a symbolic word for the interplay between life and death, past and present within the museum space.
