“...in the time before this time, when the world was unfinished...people then were animals. Animals were people. They wore each other’s masks and parkas.”
Tom Lowenstein, ‘Ancient Land: Sacred Whale, The Inuit Hunt and its Rituals’
This series of work was inspired by the British Museum's collection of Inuit artefacts and various anthropology books and studies on the Inuit cultures and their relationship with animals. From this exposure emanated a longing to connect with animal spirits, an anthropomorphic romanticism.
The Eggshell Headpiece has been shown at the Nunnery (London), the Pump House Gallery (London), Fjúk Arts Centre (Iceland), La Galleria, Pall Mall (London), and the whole series at a pop-up gallery space in Hackney (London).
