Benjamin Peterson: Hunting & Fishing

During his residency, Benjamin Peterson scaled down and expanded his life-sized hunting trophy heads to dollhouse-sized cabin and ice fishing shack to explore the hunting and fishing culture of his youth in Michigan. “Looking back now, it seems so odd that I was so involved in that world.” He says.

Taking 1980s TV hunting shows geared towards kids with their jaunty music and upbeat approach, Peterson is in the process of producing a macabre and funny stop action video using his sets and figures made of clay and florist oasis which was produced in his hometown of Wilmington, MI.
