Century Zoo I – VI
Century Zoo is an evolving installation, which consists of representations of classical antiquity. Each element begins as an observational drawing from the original object, which I then eroded through my studio process. Each time Century Zoo gets reinstalled, more corruption takes place, emphasizing how interpretation and analysis of cultural artifacts create a misrepresentation of the subject. These new ‘corrupted’ objects inadvertently reveal the motivations and fantasies of the artist and their cultural environment.
