ZURICH, SWITZERLAND • Fotomuseum Winterthur • 30 May - 4 October 2015
|Over the last two decades, artists have sought to question humankinds relation to the animal world, reworking categories of representation in order to rethink human-animal relations as well as the nature of creative practice itself. Beastly/Tierisch explores these issues in recent photography and video by Sammy Baloji, Marcus Coates, Revital Cohen und Tuur Van Balen, Charlotte Dumas, Peter Hujar, Simen Johan, Erik Kessels, Elad Lassry, Jochen Lempert, Katja Novitskova, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Moussa Sarr, Carolee Schneemann, Xiaoxiao Xu and many more, revealing how the traditionally anthropocentric nature of vision has been overturned. The exhibition examines the way in which animals become embroiled in human processes and passions, whether caged, consumed or otherwise caught up in a very human animal-industrial complex. It also explores how the animal appears in art as a figure of critique, either in the form of political allegory or through aesthetic transformation.|
