About

Specere is an amalgamation of photographic project work produced over the past ten years by photographic practitioner Alexandra Murphy – ­each project focuses on a specific natural history museum collection. The works explore potential connections between metapsychology, museology and photography -­ between Todestrieb or death-­drive (Sigmund Freud), decay and possibilities of defiance in attempts to preserve the past. ‘Specere’ is the Latin root word for common words such as: specimen; spectacle; species – all words relevant to Alexandra’s research, thus Specere becomes a symbolic word for the interplay between life and death, past and present within the museum space. See www.acm-­photo.com for further project information.
