Wunderkammer, say what? Oh, you know, it’s just German for cabinet of curiosities, which is a pretty apt name for Kimberly Witham’s exhibit. Examining the boundaries between natural history and man’s impact on the environment, Witham uses dead animals placed next to household items to subtly highlight the natural beauty of humans, animals, and death. “I’m particularly excited about Kimberly’s aesthetic coming into Redux because our space is so malleable and can transform into what our exhibiting artists need,” says Redux’s executive director Stacy Huggins. “Witham is slated to bring two taxidermy works, and we’re super excited. From her descriptions, they sound like more of a vignette, a little scene that the artist has created with her wicked eye and aesthetic. I think the work will be attractive to an even wider audience than our normal demographic.” Learn more about the artist and her work at the opening reception, which kicks off with an artist talk followed by the party. There’ll be beer from Holy City Brewing, wine, and a food truck that is yet to be named. And CofC student Becca Smith will provide some music. The exhibit runs through March 8.
