Simon Faithfull: exploring our relationship with animals
In his artist residency, Simon Faithfull questions the relationships between humans and animals, and our attempts to group the latter in rigid scientific systems.
Simon portrays his experiences of the world through video, digital drawing, installations and writing.
For Contagious Cities, he has created an installation using 80 bird specimens and 120 of his own drawings. ‘An Arbitrary Taxonomy of Birds’ explores our attempts to categorise animals and questions our relationship with the natural world and zoonotic disease.
This work will be exhibited at the Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin from May to September 2019.
