Virtual Artist Talk: Jennifer Angus
Join artist Jennifer Angus as she shares the inspiration behind her powerful installations, including “Wistful Wild,” currently on view at the Brandywine Museum of Art through January 8, 2023, as part of Fragile Earth: The Naturalist Impulse in Contemporary Art.
Angus works with preserved insects as her medium, pinning them to walls in ornamental patterns and arranging them in poses under glass domes or in cabinet drawers. A professor of Design Studies at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Angus creates installations of surprising beauty while also informing audiences of insects’ importance to the ecosystem. Angus collects her specimens in an ecologically sound manner, obtaining many from insect farms and reusing and repairing them over decades. She considers them “ambassadors for their species” working to raise awareness about the importance of preservation.
