Join us online on Thursday 10 March 2022, 6pm–8pm for Animal as Conduit: a reading group by artist and researcher Hattie Godfrey. This is a Public Programme event for Ciarán Ó Dochartaigh’s current exhibition Ferox. The reading group will explore how examining non-human experience advances our understanding of human subjects.
Does our use of animal metaphor mean we are becoming-animal, or is animal becoming-human?
Through the examination of selected critical texts, you will discuss how animals are used as a channel for conveying human subjects and experiences and how drawing these parallels simultaneously creates a sense of kinship with animals, but also potentially separates animals from their own contexts. We begin exploring our commonality with animals at a very young age; children, even in urbanised environments, often present a spontaneous interest in animals. We see ourselves reflected not just in their behaviours, but also their landscapes, their attitudes. Within the frame of ‘art’ we utilise this reflection to play-out human experience.
