Murphy, Alexandra (2017) Specere. [Show/Exhibition]

Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)


Specere is a culmination of photographic-based works by Alexandra Murphy exploring natural history museum collections in the UK. About The projects produced over the past ten years explore potential connections between metapsychology, museology and photography - between Todestrieb or death-drive (Sigmund Freud), decay and possibilities of defiance in attempts to preserve the past. ‘specere’ is the Latin root word for common words such as: specimen; spectacle; species – all words relevant to my research, thus Specere becomes a symbolic word for the interplay between life and death, past and present within the museum space.
