Ben ik een dier?

Vanna Bowles, performing Transcending Parrot


Am I an animal? (Ben ik een dier?) was a group exhibition on human-animal relationships addressed in contemporary art. The very personal question of the title would set the visitor in a self reflective mode. All artists presented have investigated this question from different perspectives and within different media.

During the opening artist Vanna Bowles performed Transcending Parrot in which she would ascend the staircase in a parrot costume made out of paper and slowly undress herself becoming the artist again and the costume the artwork.  Artists collective Radio Renée started an animated conversation with the public about the rights of animals.
