Home to some of the nation’s finest artisans, the JamFactory will present a playful ode to the wonder of the shell in a GalleryTwo project called ‘Lovers of Neptune’s Cabinet’. In 1720 six Dutch shell collectors met once a month to share their love of shells. They called themselves the ‘Lovers of Neptune’s Cabinet’ and according to scholar Henry E. Coomans, their small group was the first conchological society.
In a tribute to this coterie of shell lovers, and as a homage and complement to the exhibition Lola Greeno: Cultural Jewels, selected artists selected from the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art are exhibiting work inspired by the world of the shell. These conchological and marine marvels will form a cabinet of wonders at the JamFactory in GalleryTwo and be exhibited as a component of the 2016 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art.
