Art and Animals
by Giovanni Aloi


Overview - "Art is continually haunted by the animal," wrote Deleuze and Guattari. Over the past two decades, animals have quite literally invaded the gallery space, from Joseph Beuys' co-habiting with a coyote, Janis Kounelli's installation of live horses, and Damien Hirst's shark in formaldehyde, to Mark Dion's natural history displays, and Marco Evaristti's "goldfish in a blender."

Overview
"Art is continually haunted by the animal," wrote Deleuze and Guattari. Over the past two decades, animals have quite literally invaded the gallery space, from Joseph Beuys' co-habiting with a coyote, Janis Kounelli's installation of live horses, and Damien Hirst's shark in formaldehyde, to Mark Dion's natural history displays, and Marco Evaristti's "goldfish in a blender." In this latest addition to the highly acclaimed Art and... series, Giovanni Aloi surveys the insistent presence of animals in the world of contemporary art, exploring the leading concepts which inform this emerging practice. From exhibitions featuring live animals, to taxidermy, and interspecies communication, Giovanni Aloi explores how animals feature in modern art with a range of thought-provoking and innovative visual representations. Art and Animals challenges ideas of identity, "otherness," and civilization by explaining the role animals have occupied in our cultural development and illustrating their presence in the visual arts today.
