X-Ray (2014)

Ready-made radiographic imaging. 

 

This series of works explore the tension between animal suffering and human benefit and human-animal relations. Animals in the context of science are being used as research tools. In here a different relationship between man and animal is being shown. Capturing not only the wounded pets but also their owner's hands which they have exposed to radiation in order to hold their pets. The X-ray radiation penetrates into the body and reveals all the layers underneath the skin. The figures seem almost monstrous as the human hands and the animal merge into one hybrid figure.
