Lenore Malen: I Am The Anima

About the Exhibition


Jan 19 – Apr 1, 2012


Koppelman Gallery
Lenore Malen’s immersive three-channel video and audio environment, I Am The Animal, simulates the spatial and temporal flow of the beehive into the landscape and re-imagines the hive as human culture. Original footage is intercut with archival and found footage, beginning in a documentary fashion then moving into imagery alluding to genetics and robotics. The installation and an accompanying artist’s book are both a philosophical inquiry into the way humans anthropomorphize non-human animals and a plea against the industrialized treatment of them.
