Failed Dioramas unveils the idle interiors of a Milanese apartment, where a bizarre array of hunting trophies and collectors' items are haphazardly combined in all possible manners.

This unusual insight into a private collection documents the failure of the collector to stage the trophies by the known rules of the art but it can also be interpreted as a genre of still life.
