Bestiary :: A Terrible Beauty of Insects


Although I am still pursuing Straandbeast AND negotiating with the Leiden Museum, I have found myself transfixed by the insectoid practice of Jennifer Angus. Her most recent work, ‘Terrible Beauty’ was an installation at The Textile Museum of Canada. Angus used more than fifteen thousand insect specimens from S.E. Asia, pinning the directly onto the walls of the gallery into intricate repeat patterns that evoked wallpaper and textiles. The installation reflected upon and mirrored the Victorian predilection for collecting and incorporating otherness into their cosy aesthetic. Angus created a series of imaginary rooms, each of which reflect the personality of a fictitious explorer and collector. Her earlier work is just as resplendent.
