Published in October 2010 to accompany the International Symposium and Exhibition of Contemporary Fine Art Practice, in response to the theme of provenance and the Wunderkammer.

The exhibition and symposium explore a relationship with the history and ethics of collecting natural specimens, and questions posed by a collision of the past, present and the future of such collections. Provenance, like the Wunderkammer, is a commentary on the naturalistic representation of the physical world, to stimulate conversation, inspire wonder and to provide a threshold to view our own reflection in the ambiguous connections between the natural world and humanity.

Curated, edited and introduced by Angela Cockayne, the publication includes texts by Stephen Beasley, Philip Hoare, Gabrielle Forshaw, Viktor Wynd and Molly Young.
