The urban wildlife has always been an omnipresent element for Londoners, from which stressed-out city dwellers draw therapeutic benefit.
The natural evolutionary progression of humans has led to disturbances in the darwinistic law and order; foxes now hunt trash, falcons have learned to benefit from artificial lights and squirrels have stopped to using their voices due to volume. Many species are stuck in a vacuum where they haven’t been before, and from where they will never be able to escape.
The unnatural staged room with its distorted graphics plays with an idea of a new world where animals no longer have identities. The hunter and the hunted roam together in a surreal space, retired from their natural instincts and intuitions.
