What is the potential of fragmentary information, and how does the incomplete shape the complete? For London Design Festival 2015, see original artworks that explore these ideas, taking the Museum’s collection of antiquities as a starting point.

Curatorial collective Workshop for Potential Design has invited five artists and designers – Paul Elliman, Gemma Holt, Sam Jacob, Peter Marigold and Study O Portable – to produce new artworks that respond to and explore the concept of the fragment. Inspired by the Museum's collection of fragments from ancient Greece and Rome, they create an intimate yet diverse body of work that invites the viewer to speculate on the whole, encouraging us to draw our own, unique conclusions.

See “pieces” in the No.12 Breakfast Room, and amongst the Collection in the Museum’s Crypt.
