“Susan Gold has been working with nature as a subject of her art since the 1960s. In the past ten years, she has spent considerable time haunting museums of natural history that served as points of departure for art projects. Research forays to investigations of the encyclopedic collections and behind-the-scenes practices of institutions like the museums of natural history in London and New York, as well as more idiosyncratic
sites such as Walter Rothschild’s Zoological Collection and the preserved
homes of Swedish naturalist, Carolus Linnaeus.” (from Susan Gold: Trophy Room).
