Primitive animal instincts lurk in our own depths, waiting for the chance to slide past a conscious moment. The sculptures Beth Cavener create focus on human psychology, stripped of context and rationalization, and articulated through animal and human forms.
Cavener want to pry at those uncomfortable, awkward edges between animal and human. Entangled in their own internal and external struggles, the figures express frustration for the human tendency towards cruelty and lack of understanding. Something conscious and knowing is captured in their gestures and expressions.
Made by Like Knows Like co-founder and filmmaker Bas Berkhout. Coming soon.
