ANIMAL ANTICS

20.00

An eye for an eye. The elephant Lakshmi locks gazes with the photographer Ave – the one gussied up as an avatar of Hindu spirituality, the other blocked or mediated by a third, technological eye. Through the damming up of experience that photography (or art, culture, even memory) makes possible, we can stand in Ave’s place and experience the same uncanny rush of esse est percipi -- to be is to be perceived – through the time-binding dislocation of Art and the anthropocentricity -undermining freakiness of mutual regard with a highly intelligent non-human sentient being. –Doug Harvey
