A Collapsible Anthology of Collections of Clutter, 2014.

Edited, compiled and misfiled by Zoë Mendelson

This Mess is a Place is an interdisciplinary project, which explores the borders of Hoarding – an inability to discard possessions - and Collecting, questions their connections and asks what makes one normative and the other pathological. Descriptions of hoarding suggest the emergence of pathology at the point at which living space becomes encroached upon to the degree that belongings overwhelm its function.
