This month one of the University of Windsor’s undergraduates, Erika DuChene, will be showcasing her artwork at an independent Drawing and BioArt exhibition. The project is a solo venture and will showcase all of her work from the last year of her undergraduate degree. The exhibition, An Inner Perspective, will feature many works within the sphere of BioArt and drawing. 

BioArt is art that uses a biological media as its source. The exhibition will take place at the Artspeak Gallery in Windsor from Feb. 10 to 14 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with a special reception to be held on Feb. 13 from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

DuChene said her work has been done to show the beauty within the deceased.

“It will be a collection of of 2D and 3D works with both real and drawn skulls and bones to show the inner perspective of the animal anatomy,” said DuChene. “Each piece has its own story to tell to immortalize the art form within the realm of taxidermy and fine media illustration.”

While DuChene has decided to take part in this exhibition on her own as a solo project, she has received support and encouragement from her Bioart Professor, Dr. Jennifer Willet, from the University of Windsor.

“I am thrilled for Erika,” said Willet. “This is her first solo exhibition off campus. I cannot take any credit for this project. It is all a result of her own initiative and hard work.”

Dr. Willet also said that DuChene was one of 13 students and Alumni that was asked to present their work in an exhibition highlighting the best student BioArt projects produced in her lab over the last five years. That exhibition has just wrapped up in Toronto.
