Extravagance: Out of Scale, Out of Norm, Out of Rule

National Taiwan University Museums Group

Our third collaboration with the National Taiwan University. Going back to the starting point of natural history, this exhibition showcased items in each University’s gigantic collections of scientific specimens, which deviate from usual scale, norms and rules. Because of their extravagant nature, these items are rare and beautiful, and keep on provoking our astonishment. Through existing objects, we addressed the source of human intellect, that is the curiosity driven by the experience of feeling wonder at the sight of things.
