Work from EFA Project Space artist Julian Montague will be part of “Notched Bodies: Insects in Contemporary Art”, on view September 13 through November 13, 2013 at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park. The exhibition, presented by NYC Parks, features eleven contemporary artists who offer various analyses on the importance of insects through a variety of media.
Secondary Occupants/Collected & Observed is a continuation of Julian Montague's 2007-2008 project To Know the Spiders. He killed, collected and then studied the faces of the spiders. Furthering the idea in Secondary Occupants, Montague focuses on the psychological aspects of how these animals/invertebrates threaten our safety on the "inside."
