Charlotte Wetton on the inspiration for Accessioning
When I was a kid, I had collections: miniature china animals, bright-haired trolls, gem stones. Now, I feel that we’re ruining the planet with our consumerism and ruining our peace of mind with our over-crowded houses, houses like ‘The Archivist’s House’, where ‘box files split like fruit-skins / spongy and bulging’. And yet… part of me misses collecting.
