ANIMAL INSTINCT by Lola Fischer in "Reconsidering Earth" exhibition

Title: Animal Instinct
Technic: Acrylic on canvas
Dimensions: 100x120 cm

I’ve chosen to interpret the word environment on two levels of meaning. First of all as the natural environment (all living and non-living things that occur naturally on Earth), and second of all as the social environment (the culture that an individual lives in, and the people and institutions with whom they interact). On that base, I’ve made a metaphor between that two meanings. I used two mechanisms from natural environment, such as animal instinct and atavism to illustrate human relations. To illustrate the problem , I chose to use the silhouette of most popular human’s friend, the dog. That makes the analogy more imaginative. Dog is quite popular in pop culture, which makes the work more ambiguous.
Also, the main inspiration for the work have been the dogs fights. Those kind of entertainment is illegal and inhuman. That dirty business is one of the most cruel and disgusting example of human intrusion in natural environment.
