About the Program

David Asmodeus' interest in natural history is reflected in his work. In recent years, his works has explored scenic design, the creation of illusion in artificial environments, precious/sacred objects, and museums and their pathological respect for order. His assemblages have the feeling of past lives. His use of bones, taxidermy, fur, and antler play against the man-made elements of glass, mirror/jewellery, and brass, creating a haunting and fascinating work that at once seems both ancient and modern.
