London College of Communication is delighted to unveil ‘Elephant Atlas’ – an exhibition featuring 17 artists and writers involved in photography, illustration, performance, installation, film, creative writing and participatory workshops. responding to objects from the Cumin Museum collection.
The exhibition will step away from the traditional methods of presenting museum objects and museum subjects. Instead, each contributor has used ideas raised by the objects and stories, choosing items or aspects which have captured their imaginations.
Curated by Judy Aitken and LCC Senior Lecturer for BA (Hons) Photography and MA Photography Sophy Rickett, the show explores innovative and alternative ways of using these collections, which imagines and re-imagines the lives that were lived here before, their preoccupations, beliefs and ways of life.
