E.V. Day's primary formal concerns are with the radical alteration of the space typically occupied by such charged cultural signifiers as wedding dresses and Stealth Bombers, and her year-long Lab Grant residency at Dieu Donné offered a compelling opportunity to translate these ideas into two- dimensional form. Best known for exploding couture—and the occasional passel of thongs—into architecturally significant sculptural forms, Day took advantage of the time she spent with the Dieu Donné team to hone her experiment down to the use of one culturally loaded visual element—the fishnet stocking. The resulting body of work reflects the artist's experience of working with the handmade paper medium while at the same time maintaining fidelity to her longstanding interest in social, particularly feminist, critique.

E.V. Day is a sculptor and installation artist known for probing issues of gender and sexuality, often by incorporating eviscerated articles of clothing in her artwork. Day deconstructs sexual stereotypes—quite literally—by ripping and shredding haute couture, wedding gowns, and lingerie into abstract compositions resembling clouds of flying shrapnel or supernovae. Her work—which she describes as "futurist abstract paintings in three dimensions"—playfully transforms conventional signifiers of femininity into genderless, abstract color fields.

Day's work has been exhibited throughout the United States and abroad at venues including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, the Andy Warhol Museum, the Guggenheim Museum, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Barbican Centre in London, and the New Museum.
