Mr Monkey examined Runswick Bay, a palimpsest of paper, fabric and cloth by Helen Welford, which evoked the sea around the north-east of England. Then he looked at Hannah Webster's The Curators of the Manchester Museum to see some of the staff of the Manchester Museum wandering around their storage areas. There was a chest of drawers beneath the photographs and a note on the floor telling everyone to open the drawers, so Mr Monkey had a quick look at what turned out to be pictures of items from the museum - such as a scarab beetle, an animal's skull, and a live frog - chosen by the curators.
