WHO KEEPS THE DOG?
Curatorial project by Rochi Llaneza
“Man’s Sacred Relationship with the Animal Kingdom” by Julie (no last name) is the title of an essay I read a while back where she talks about how humans have to be more kind and respectful to the animal kingdom because of reasons we all know or should know by now. She articulates clearly our common ‘sensitivities’ and ‘evolutionary path’.
In this select group of art works I go to the other end of the pendulum and address our passion for the animal kingdom. A portrayal of how these artists take on with aggressiveness, compassion, love and defiance their association to the subject matter…hope the title helps describe the argument.
