Abstract

With the ravages of environmental destruction and global warming, the fate of the animal is increasingly challenged. Curated by Yvette Watt, Reconstructing the Animal involves a ‘re-thinking’ of animals and human-animal relationships through the work of a number of contemporary artists whose practices take such matters as a primary focus for their artwork. Reconstruction takes place literally, through recycled taxidermy, and also metaphorically, by asking us to reassess and reflect upon our own attitudes to animals.
