In the exhibition’s curator Jonathan Walford’s blog he explains “We used a glass and steel display cabinet made by Ikea called ‘Klingsbo’. The door in the back locks and a glass top allows for lighting the case externally. They were a very affordable $150 each. Putting the first one together took the best part of an hour but after that we were getting them assembled in about 15 minutes each.”
