Amanda Paige Alderson

curator, artist, arts worker


Like memento moris, my works are snippets of memory and remembering. I collect, magpie like, from occasions special to me, family adventures, cast-off items from people and animals, ecological formations, and things that catch my eye. Stored in found vessels, from my earliest childhood recollections, I’ve been creating a personal taxonomy of items that retain and hold memories for me. From these I draw inspiration. Together, my works and collections form an autobiographical insight into my life, a cabinet of my own curiosities.
