Monique Habraken is an artist of the undead. Her work begins with the carcass of a duck, killed by hunters in charge of population control. She retrieves the duck’s plumage and fashions a feathered tapestry of intense color and form.
Habraken writes: “In this way, I’m trying to keep the feeling of untouchable wildness alive.”
Creating new life from the ashes of dissolution; Habrken’s artwork is a poignant reminder that beauty can never be lost, only reborn. Text by Beth Lauck.
