tactile installation, fur, herbaceous plants, 150x150x100cm
The aim of the work was to create an intimate and safe space to pay respects and say last good-byes to the remains of beings killed for their fur. The room was seperated with curtains to allow the viewers to decide how close they will get. The form itself is a reference to the compositions the artist made as a child for animals who passed away in the woods or on the meadows nearby. Over time she began to see beauty in death, She watched carefully how the bodies changed, how detritivores devoured their tissues, how the life that passed became life again, changing its form.
All skins where found in a second-hand shop, the plants used were collected from the mowed urban areas. Most of which were "invasive" species.
