22 Sep 2007 – 9 Dec 2007

The Prospect series is designed to introduce artists in the early stages of their careers, in the form of a small solo exhibition with catalogue. The young sculptor Dustin Wenzel needs little introduction, having already made the news with the vandalization of his bronze bust of a white-tailed doe, Having left the woods 2005 (since restored), and the exhibition at NSCAD of his cast iron roasted chickensĖwith real sauce.

Both works are installed with other cast sculptures embodying the artistís interest in contemporary perceptions of animals and his skill in mold-making and lost-wax casting. Included are two endocranial bronze casts of great whales, commissioned by the New Brunswick Museum and Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, and derived from specimens in the NBM research collection. These impressions of brain cavities convey physiological information, while also evoking the intelligence and special sensorium of a sophisticated aquatic mammal.

PERFORMANCE OF "SAUCING" on Sunday 23 September at 2:30 pm, during the opening reception, followed by an artistís talk at 3:30 pm.
