Eat Me, Drink Me + Wonderland Exhibition Opening

August 26, 2022 – November 27, 2022
Admission: FREE

In Eat Me, Drink Me, Jennifer Angus’s whimsical installation inspires a sense of unabashed wonder. Using insects and other wildlife in unexpected and playful ways, she invites viewers to return to a state of childlike curiosity and discovery while posing pressing questions about our relationship with the natural world.

About the Artist

Creating beautiful, highly intricate patterns by pinning thousands of insect specimens to a wall, Jennifer Angus’s installations invite both apprehension and wonder. Her work seeks to provoke a series of increasingly urgent questions about our perceptions and what we value and protect: Are we big or small? Do individuals make a difference? What are the stories we need to tell, and those we need to change?

Jennifer Angus is a professor in the Design Studies department at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. She received her education at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (BFA) and at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (MFA). Jennifer has exhibited her work internationally including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and Spain. She has been the recipient of numerous awards including Canada Council, Ontario Arts Council and Wisconsin Arts Board grants. Most recently she received the inaugural Forward Art Prize, a new unrestricted award for outstanding women artists of Wisconsin.
