Inspired by the work of American artist Joseph Cornell, the Curiosity Cabinets series is an eclectic mix of strange scenes. It depicts surreal worlds that would exist in a Georges Melies film and is filled with parts of animals, people and plants that have been mingled together to create funny and disturbing objects.
Creatively and imaginatively assembled by Maissa Toulet, a teacher-turned-artist based in Paris, is full of narrative. Toulet describes her Curiosity Cabinets series as "miniature museums" that come "to terms, on a rational as well as aesthetic plane, with the chaos of life and its derivatives" such as death and illnesses.
