This exhibition united artists Charles Binns and Louise LaHive in the Keeper's Galleries to present recent work inspired by St Albans Museums' Collections, while exploring broader issues around museum collecting, display, archaeology and natural history.
Charles works in sculpture, casting discarded objects collected from beaches and riverbanks in plaster and bronze resin, to create new fossils or relics. Inspired by objects from the museum collection, he showcased his own collection of over 50 contemporary archaeological records.
Working across large scale drawings and paintings, Louise also explored a theme of the archaeology of tomorrow. Incorporating fragments from St Albans Museums' natural history collection, she created new compositions placing observed animals, birds and human figures within invented natural environments.
