Matterlurgy is an artistic research collaboration initiated by Helena Hunter and Mark Peter Wright.  Their work emphasises cross-disciplinary collaborations which are disseminated through exhibitions, performance, workshops and events. Drawing on research from across UCL, Matterlurgy worked closely with UCL Museums and Collections to develop the curatorial approach and design of the exhibition. According to the artists, “The central challenge for us was to hold onto the vibrancy of objects, whilst simultaneously showing their ethico-political milieu. We want the aesthetics of exhibition to not only work backwards through history, but also forwards, through the present and its possible futures.”
