New York-based sculptor E.V. Day made a name for herself with her exploding installation sculptures, where she uses fishing wire to hang deconstructed frocks (including opera costumes, bridal gowns, flamenco dresses, and more) in a hauntingly graceful manner. Two summers ago, she was the recipient of the Munn Artist in Residence of the Versailles Foundation, which she spent living on Claude Monet's estate in Giverny. The body of work that emerged from her four-month stay bears an unexpected twist to the gardens' history and Day's habitual M.O.—though upon closer inspection, might not be so peculiar after all.
