Scarlett Hooft Graafland's Polar Bear and Turtle included in We are Animals

Kunsthal, Museumpark Westzeedijk 341 3015 AA Rotterdam
5 February - 23 May 2021

We are Animals explores different aspects of the relationship between humans and animals. The works either express edgy perspectives on how humans manipulate other animal species, or celebrate and appreciate animals for being the miraculous creatures that we can recognise so much of ourselves in. 

People love to surround themselves with adorable, cuddly creatures. Colourful stuffed animals fill our toy shops, photographs and videos of cats are massively watched and shared on the internet, and many of us consider our own pet to be our favourite family member. The artists participating in We Are Animals explore these mechanisms while simultaneously revealing the downsides. Martin Eder’s greatly enlarged, sugary paintings of internet cats almost transform the adorable into the monstrous.
