Tudor House Antiques
[Details on Request] were lucky enough to escape to the country for a few days last week. On a day trip to Henley on Thames we came across this tiny cavernous antique shop.
The old tudor house was crammed with curious objects - tins, baskets, books, lamps, all placed together with there own kind to create vast collections. We could have spent all afternoon exploring the assortment of things.
[DoR]'s next exhibition, Loot and Everything Else looks at our urge to collect material and inanimate objects. As well as exploring the notion of collections, the exhibition will demonstrate the bizarre and outlandish obsessive nature of why collectors collect.
Private View - Thursday 3rd June
Exhibition - Friday 4th June - Sunday 6th June
