Navigating Mental Geographies and Natural Histories

Installation artist Eugene Parnell
published in Art Access Dec.-Jan. '06-'7

Eugne Parnell is a sculptor and installation artist with the kind of imagination one might associate with a writer of graphic novels, and an insatiable curiosity about things most people never think about, such as why museum dioramas look so strange and what he calls "the mental geographies of childhood and the politics of Natural History and its presentation."
