Lawn mowers, neon signs and even fingernails are among the objects featured in our new exhibition, Collectomania.
Take a peek inside the private collections of Queenslanders and see how our State’s collectors gain meaning and identity from their collections.
Collectomania highlights a very human passion – collecting the things we love, fuelled by a sometimes unexplainable drive or desire to find the next perfect addition, preserve a moment in time or celebrate beauty, function and achievement.
From a meticulous reconstruction of a “hobbit hole” to washing machines, street art stickers and items preserved from Brisbane’s iconic Regent Theatre, Collectomania might just bring out the collector in you!
