UK based sculptor, Kendra Haste, creates lifelike reproductions of creatures using galvanized wire and wire mesh. Haste finds wire to be the perfect medium in her attempt to suggest a sense of movement and life in the animals, exploring the contrasts in weight, lightness, solidity and transparency.
Curated by Rom Levy and Charlotte Dutoit, ‘ANIMAL’ aims to explore “the conflict between our innate animal instincts and our present lives, which are coated with the dependence of technology and our fear for the unknown.” -RR
“The biggest part of my work [is to] try to reflect our dramatic nature. I use the universal body-language to show the issues of the human condition.” – Borondo
With this in mind, the artist will present eight thematic spaces that include video installations and painting animations in collaboration with Carmen Maín (Spain), and sculpture installations, created together with Edoardo Tresoldi (Italy) and Despina Charitonidi (Germany). A limited edition signed screen-print entitled “Fake Paradise” will be released during the opening night.
Some work in progress photos from the artist studio:
When in doubt, leave it to the dolphins. When a dog had been stuck in a canal for over 15 hours in Marco Island, Florida, it wasn’t people that saved the dog, it was dolphins who splashed and splashed until it got someone’s attention. As the dog’s owner told local news, “‘The lady here who had gotten him out of the canal said, ‘No, the dolphins were with him’.” Wow.
Fucking dolphins saved a dog’s life. And Gaddafi can’t even get along with his own Libyan people? What we can learn from the Animal Kingdom.
