Elrie Joubert – Curiosity

About artwork:

The proverbial expression ‘curiosity killed the cat’, is usually used to warn of the dangers of unnecessary investigation.  In the embossed word “curiosity”, accompanied by a cat skull, reminds the viewer of this warning and its possible consequences.    Despite the “warning”, an inquisitive viewer will most likely be intrigued with the very small and secretive writing in the background.  On closer inspection the viewer is then bombarded with other cat sayings, proverbs and subsequently the realisation that the variation of the saying ‘curiosity killed the cat…. but satisfaction brought it back’ is possibly a more gratifying metaphor to live by.
