Painting on paper, co-created with three deers, De(a-e)r Actions Performances, Aahrus (DK), 2018.
While being in an artist residency at the ARoS Kunstmuseum (Aarhus, DK), I regularly go to a park populated by deers. Their very familiar behavior led me to imagine some shared actions with this animal, half-wild half-domestic. Alone with my camera, I somehow invite them to take part in the creation process of three works ; For each, I define a title beforehand. 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.
