JACQUI DORAN – Wild Things

Hosted By 19 KAREN

May 11th - June 8th, 2013

Artist Statement

“Wild things” is based around the children’s book by Maurice Sendak “Where the Wild Things Are. A Classic tale of a boy named Max living out his own fantasy/reality in his Wolf Suit. Max is the king of the wild things after his naughty escapade throughout the house. For my solo show I have chosen Rabbit boy as the explorer of all wild things – except in this case the wild things are real creatures.

Children and animals share two great characteristics that as adults we sometimes miss – the freedom of intuitive play and the joy & freedom of being at one with their natural environment. For this show I wish to harness a little bit of that magic and transcend us to a time where our lives were full of imagination and wonderment at the world.

Also animals are very cool & ultimately so are we!!
