"The fabulous 18th century Vedudista, Piranesi, was a visionary of staggeringly beautiful objects which remained conjectures of fantasy until very recently when they were granted 3-dimensionality for a show in 2013. I love this idea of a beautiful object that never existed. As my obsessive passion for ironically absurd but perversely magnificent objects continues to escalate, this show should be seen as my Wunderkammer. ‘All that Glitters is not God’ is a hardware-store catalogue of objects of ostentation representing either a rendering of the real or pure invention. Some exist in collections, others are fiction."
