Jennifer Angus’ new series of site-specific installations reference the beauty of historical Victorian European ornament and its relationship to nature. Her all-over designs represent flora and fauna and create an ordered version of the wild through stylization and repetition. However by using over fifteen thousand pinned tropical insects of various forms, hues and sizes to create these patterns, Angus challenges the viewer’s notion of attraction and repulsion, comfort and discomfort. Publication documenting a series of three exhibitions, at the Musée d’art de Joliette, the Textile Museum of Canada and the Dennos Museum.
