Cabinet of Curiosities

This June, we're exhibiting a wonderful, weird collection of curiosities...

Seventy Year 10 students (aged 14 to 15) from Channing and Parliament Hill schools have been working with Lauderdale House’s artist-in-residence Alison Lam to create 600 ceramic and 70 bronze hand sized pieces inspired by the collections of plants and artefacts of James Yates, a Victorian resident of Lauderdale House, and the natural environment of Waterlow Park. Each student has created multiple artworks in ceramic and bronze which will be put together to create 4 larger pieces exhibited on the Lauderdale House Tea Lawn and around the park. Full details will be displayed at the Sundial on the tea lawn.    

Meet the artist: Lauderdale House artist in residence, Muswell Hill based Alison Lam will be on the Tea lawn to talk to you about the project every afternoon 2 to 4pm 19th to 24th June with an additional piece of work – curiosity cabinets containing bronze artefacts created by the students.
