From June through October, 2017, MadArt welcomes artist Jennifer Angus, a professor in the Design Studies department at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. Working with real insect specimens (mostly farmed and reused), Angus is transforming MadArt Studio into a floor-to-ceiling menagerie of kaleidoscopic patterns. What appear at first to be familiar wallpaper designs upon closer look reveal their unexpected composition. Super Natural is intended to be a temple to nature. Angus believes that a sacred space can be comforting, exhilarating and terrifying all at the same time and she aims to turn MadArt Studio into a place to astonish, to contemplate, to learn, and to preserve.
