In his latest multimedia installation, award-winning printmaker Erik Edson stages incongruous elements, from Baroque painting and an upholstered bear to planetary movement and cheesy rec-room décor. Writer and savvy art-scene commentator Catherine Osborne examines the artist’s methods in the context of his wider practice and his engagement with the Wild kingdom as subject. In her text, Curator Jan Allen reads fable as witty experiential musing on the acculturation of nature.
