Cabinet of Curiosities

8 Dec 07 – 30 Jan 08 at St Andrews Town Hall foyer. Artist in Abbeyview, Dunfermline Nicola Atkinson Does Fly collaborated with carpenter Nick Millar, artists Hanna Tuulikki, Carol Lambie and Karen Vaughan, musician Stevie Jackson, cultural broker Ben Spencer and writers Michael Wilson and Chris Hladowski to produce a series of works that addressed the issues faced by the people of Abbeyview looking to the past, present, and future.

Housed in Nick Millar’s magic creation of the Curiosity Cabinet, is the recreation of the SEE EYE EVENT in miniature. He has pulled together all the nine art works shown in the Abbeyview Allan Crescent flats in March 2007 into one portable experience. The furniture of the 1950s and ’80s was found in charity shops in Dunfermline: a dresser, a bureau, a record player, a bar, a stool and a standard lamp crashing together at all angles to form the work. The SEE EYE artists also selected 18 interesting and quirky books to be housed within the Curiosity Cabinet.

Residency organised by the Arts & Theatres Trust Fife.
