In(habitus): The art of collecting
From the personal collections of BLINK gallery members

The desire to collect, to keep safe our keepsakes, to celebrate and acknowledge those things that attach themselves to us – is something inherent to many artistic practices. Entering a studio space can be like stepping into an art exhibition. Mementos and collections hold a significant place in the process of making art and speak to both the creative process and of organizing one’s space.
