Digital photography, 60 x 60cm, 2018.
Part of the De(e-a)r Actions Performances.
While doing an artist residency at the ARoS KunstMuseum (Aarhus, DK), I regularly passed by a park populated by deers. Their very familiar behavior led me to imagine some shared actions with this half-wild, half-domestic animal. Alone with my camera, I somehow invite them to take part in my creation process ; Therefore, I imagine a protocol and define a title for each action. First, I take a nap with one of them (Napping With A Deer), then I paint (Painting With A Deer) and dance (Dancing With A Deer) with them. C.L.
