Hidden Interlopers 

Treading the fine line between science and magic, Anna Zimmerman explores the components of habitats. She is inspired by geographical history, topography, and nature. She is intrigued by the contrast between sterile, safe environments and the natural world. Hidden battles between animals and humans, within cultural institutions, go on all the time, unbeknownst to the average visitor. Museums must go to enormous lengths to safely preserve their collections from these trespassers - which may involve algae growing on fountains, moths and ladybugs trapped inside cases, ant colonies marching their way under the doors and through the cracks, and much, much more. This exhibition brings to light the huge dichotomy between the art that we worship as 'alive,' and which we keep in absolutely sterile conditions, versus the 'reality' that creeps and crawls in daily.
