    Anika Cartterfield, The Wild, 2017, site specific work in progress, wood, mud, drywall, paint
    Event Description:
    Anika Cartterfield deconstructs the traditional forms of the gallery -- the white wall, the pedestal, and the frame -- to interrogate how we assign and interpret the value of the ‘natural’.  Interrupting the space with new walls, mud, and wood, she demands the viewer to consider how we constrain the natural into comfortable, familiar arrangements, and how this impulse reflects a missed opportunity—to know the wild as it is, and not as we want it to be.
