Description

Both as symbols and in reality, the Animals, affect all domains of human culture: as companions, as sacrificial victims, as food, as objects of research, as political codes. In each instance, the question of what is proper to man is defined by the efforts to distinguish his being from that of the animal, as though this distinction guaranteed human dignity and self-determination.

In the series Bestiarium Plus I try to establish bridges between the two beings. In a moment were the failure of the human appears in many situations, we see in the animal the opportunity to make things better. Although they have been mistreated and oppressed for many years, they have here the opportunity to show their power and sovereignty.
