Intro
The work consists of a butterfly collection and an artist’s book in which the collection is depicted.
Manon van Kouswijk began Lepidoptera Domestica in 2005. The work consists of a butterfly collection and an artist’s book in which the collection is depicted. A new series of jewellery designs ‘Precious Stones’ arose as a result of another collection.
 
Galerie Ra is presenting both projects at the new fair: Object, in Las Palmas, Rotterdam. 

A large number of domestic objects served as a starting point for the butterfly collection. Based on these objects, the book explores various aspects of collecting: pleasure and obsession, uniformity and diversity, grouping and arranging, flea market and Wunderkammer. 

The text is in English and the book costs € 25,
