The way you feed me… is an exploration on the absurd relationship between humans and animals and how we perceive and interact with them on a daily basis. A first and instinctive inspiration was taken by John Berger’s essay Why look at animals (1980) in which he describes the zoo as a place of pure illusion and where compounds become a stage-like area in which the animal’s survival is fully dependent on human interactions. What does being looked at mean, combined with a limited freedom for instinctive actions and what effect does all this have on the body?
'I was taken on a beautiful journey through the absurdities of life. This piece was touching and thought-provoking and has left me with a melancholic taste of playfulness and bravery.'
