Viktor Wynd

Cabinet of Wonders

Viktor Wynd is an aesthete and artist with a penchant for curiosities, art, mess, decay, and self indulgence. The Viktor Wynd Museum in East London is arranged with the sensibility of a 17th-century Wunderkabinett. It displays and sells an eccentric and seemingly random collection of objects— everything from shrunken heads to narwhal tusks. He is the author of two books, Structures of The Sublime; Towards a Greater Understanding of Chaos, a fragmentary, modernist anti-novel published in 2005 in Miami and Viktor Wynd's Cabinet of Wonders published by Prestel/Random House in 2014
