In this latest addition to the highly acclaimed ‘Art and…’ series, Aloi surveys the insistent presence of animals in the world of contemporary art, exploring the leading concepts which inform this emerging practice.
The experimental art scene in post-Tiananmen China has featured an array of animal bodies, both living and dead, as well as interspecies encounters ranging from the playful to the sadistic, from the gently collaborative to the violently conflictual, which interrogate and destabilize contemporary constructions of the nature-culture binary.
