CALL OF CUTENESS

While we remain safe and sound, watching the latest cat fail compilation, all that is kept out of sight gets back to us in this consumerist nightmare. On a global playground, without borders, the cat’s body is devoured, exploited and controlled. Objects are fetishized and subjects are turned into things that are measurable and ready to use. They are the natural resources of a luxury they will never know themselves. In the end, bodies reveal the causes and effects of power, pleasure and hate.
