The artist E.V. Day is best known for sculptures that address the sticky paradoxes of the feminine ideal. Recently, the native Manhattanite moved to a live-in studio on outskirts of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with her husband, the cookbook author Ted Lee. Fittingly, Day’s airy new space is home to one of her largest works to date—a pair of suspended saber tooth tigers that will be on view this month at Mary Boone Gallery as part of her solo exhibition, “Semi-Feral.” Here, a peek behind the scenes.
“Semi-Feral” is on view till October 25th at Mary Boone Gallery, 745 Fifth Avenue, New York. A second iteration of “Semi-Feral” will be presented at Salomon Contemporary in Chelsea, which opens October 18th.
