Another one of Zoe Keller's (
) huge drawings from "Forty-four", currently on display at Antler !! To inquire: gallerist
- This is the last weekend that my full show will be up
folks! Honored and so grateful that many pieces from "Forty-four" will be whisked off to new homes when the show closes. 🐌Here's a bit about this (still available) piece from the zine that accompanied the show "The tiny Iowa Pleistocene Snail could rest comfortably on a fingernail, a delicate invertebrate whose tightly coiled shell discretely winds over ten thousand years of inherited memory. This snail shared the North American continent with the long gone megafauna of the last ice age: dire wolves, mammoths and saber-tooth cats. As its giant neighbors perished, the tiny snail persisted, leaving impressions of its small existence in the fossil record across the Midwest. Scientists lolumed the snail extinct until a specimen was identified in the collection of the National Museum in 1940, sadly lacking any indication of where it had been found. It took another 40 years to discover the snail’s current habitat: nestled in the leaf litter of algific talus slopes of northeast Iowa and Illinois."
