Serengeti, 2012

About the work:

The Antelope in Serengeti are by products of the hunting industry, these are the discarded bodies after the heads have been severed for trophies.
The absence of the heads asks us the viewer to fill in the gaps and imagine the animal’s expressions as they graze on the long grasses of the Serengeti,
stand alert looking for predators and fight each other for dominance.

Did you know?

All of these animals are from South Africa, all have had their heads taken for trophies by big game hunters. The larger animal is a gemsbok,
the smaller are Springbok. In parts of Africa Springbok are farmed for their meat and shipped to fashionable restaurants in Europe.

Below is a preliminary sketch of the installation from my sketchbook 2012
