Summary In this, the fifth in a series of books published by the Housemuseum on the subject of art and architecture, academic and author Paul Cater engages with the question of how artefacts are displayed, and how they are seen.Metabolism is based on Carter's lecture The Smell of Paint, or Architectures of the Dark, delivered at the Housemuseum in September 2014. Carter conducts his enquiry through a series of critical reflections and meditations on a work which has long held fascination for him; the ancient Greco-Etruscan tomb painting The Diver.In this erudite and dazzlingly written essay, Carter poses the question of how it might be possible to bridge the gap between the possible intentions of the work's creators and the curatorial practices and expectations of the modern museum.
