Where Are The Wild Things?
Solo Exhibition at the Castellani Art Museum
Where are the Wild Things?, investigates the integration of non-human animals into our own built environments, specifically the home and its surroundings. The home can be seen as a place that functions to hold nature at bay, keeping everything wild and unpredictable outside its walls. However, there are always creatures that find their way in and take up residence whether unwanted or invited. Although humans take great measures to separate themselves from nature, and to keep the “pests” away, we also cannot resist the need to be connected to that which we came from ourselves. In and around our homes the evidence of both our unease and our desire to be connected to the natural world is everywhere, however contrived and controlled it may be.
