Festival of Appropriation 2
Since there was so much that I liked at this exhibit, I had to write about another artist. Anastasia Ward created a bunch of stuffed animals of her own design by stitching together pieces from other stuffed animals.
My favorite out of all of her creations was the one called Narwhal. It sits upright and has short legs and arms. The majority of it is a dirty brownish pink, and its stomach is white. It's arms and legs were taken from a different animal and sewn on. They're not furry, with dark brown finger/toe tips. It looks sort of like an aardvark, but possbily prehistoric. Its very, very cute.
Another one I loved was call Lonet. It looks like a brown bee with big dark brown eyes. It has two purple rings around its abdomen, and has a tiny blue spike for a stinger. It has think pipe cleaner legs that look like they could really grab something. And it has a white belly. The strangest thing, however, is the long dark brown hair that sprouts from the back of its head. Bees don't have hair. Both pieces were made in 2007 with various materials.
