Intro
A project about collecting, accompanied by a publication. Starting point: 683 objects, collected by Manon van Kouswijk.
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 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.
