The Art Wall and Becky Campbell

“Curious Artefacts” is a project by artist Becky Campbell involving 81 artists, architects, designers and writers. The starting point for the project was a photograph of finds from the Antikythera Shipwreck taken after the excavation and included in the exhibition held at The National Archaeological Museum in Athens. In the image a number of objects excavated from the seabed have been dried and taken to land, then brought together on a table pushed against the wall with paper pinned above it. These artefacts have been captured by the camera suspended between two states: they have been recognised as of interest and curiosity but are not yet fully understood or categorised.

For “Curious Artefacts” Campbell has invited each of the 81 participants to contribute experiments, finished works, found images, found objects, maquettes, notes, photographs, sketches, texts and works-in-progress. At ArtWall the artefacts will be arranged densely on tables and walls, referencing the excavation and collecting of an archaeological dig, the layout of objects at a flea-market or a cabinet of curiosities.
