My work reflects an ongoing interest in modern notions of the division of the cultural and the natural, as well as constructed distinctions between the safe/domestic and the wild/disorderly. I often depict transgressions made by various creatures into the human world, drawing attention to the instability of our presumed detachment from nature.
Recent projects include Cellar (2012), featuring hundreds of rats made from vintage fur coats, and Spectre (2014), in which I created the silhouette of a polar bear by suspending crocheted snowflakes and crystals in a darkened space. A current project explores “wilderness” as a lost environment. Velvet-covered taxidermy cougar forms are photographed in the forest, creating a “faux photographic record” of this animal, as if to prove its existence.
