Still-life > Accidents de chasse, 1994-2000
For time immemorial, one of the leading questions that humanity has asked itself is: 'what's to be done with the body?' Hunting trophies unlike mummies, are in no way a preparation for a journey into the afterlife. At best, they crystallise the glory of the hunter who imposes immobility on the living creature, reducing it to its image. At worst, they become decorative objects devoid of meaning. Only art will enable the animal (posthumously) to sell its skin for a high price.
