Danielle’s’ work subverts institutional systems of representation by creating aesthetics of authority while taking poetic license with truth and history. Inspired by natural history and the museums that house it, Danielle creates her own worlds within this established context. Her upcoming installation, Frontier, presents a vision of exploration and conquest during the Age of Imperialism in the Americas. Her work searches for the elusive and misguided promise of truly untouched lands and considers this idea from the perspective of naturalists, who are themselves, Invaders.
