Dagmar Dahle: Lost Bird Collecting
Carol Williams

Dahle's interests are intricately bound to one institutional ethos, that of the museum. Her research has focused on historical and contemporary representations of animals, decorative art and craft practices that intersect with fine art, and the role of the museum in the construction of knowledge. Her collection emphasizes abandoned hobby craft projects such as naïve paintings, knitted animals and paint-by-numbers. It also includes natural objects such as bark, bird's nests, antlers, bones and so on. These objects are altered in various ways, transforming them into things of peculiar and ambiguous beauty.
