Wall of Curios, Scrap, Embroidery on Fabric embedded in Resin with Etching on the Surface, 12 x 10 x 2 cm, 2021 by Payal Chakraborty

About the work:

Thirty-five works titled ‘Wall of Curios’ question, ‘What heritage are we leaving behind for future generations?’. The works examine humans’ incomprehensive actions toward the natural environment by building several landfills across the planet, thus ignoring its impact on future generations. This contradicts the human role as archaeologists and archivists in Museums, preserving and restoring the artefacts found during excavations.
