-----

Collecting means not just procuring things. It is also about cherishing the dream of a totality transcending its parts, of a collection larger than oneself. As a phenomenon, collecting is coupled with an urge to order and arrange things, establish connections, and create images. In all this, the notion of growth and increase is elementally present. For a true collector, collecting will never end and the collection will never be complete...
/ Love Jönsson, Curator at the Röhsska Museum for Fashion, Design and Decorative Arts, Gothenburg.
