30 April 2009 to 14 November 2009


Animals and Children is a series that brings together performances, videos and installations throughout the spring and fall of 2009. The artworks presented attempt to re-direct social behaviours and assumptions about human nature by playing with becoming other than human or sharing control with children or animals. The artists included in this series create their work from an embodied viewpoint; the work does not distance itself from the subject through memory or fantasy, but physically links itself with the particular other.
