Rose Lejeune is a curator and researcher working with public institutions and private individuals to explore collecting contemporary art with a specific interest in context-based, social and performative practices. Collecting the Ephemeral is her consultancy, commissioning and research project. Running since autumn 2015, it explores how artists with social, process-based and ephemeral practices can be represented in collections and how artists re-imagine collections through interactions with them. Current projects include a year-long series of new commissions at the Victoria Museum and Gallery, Liverpool and commissions for Architectures of Displacement at Pitt Rivers Museum, University of Oxford, a two year research project that explores the current refugee crisis through the architectures of shelter and material cultures.
