    About The Work

    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.
