The Animal Spirit Inside Human Body

The Animal Spirit Inside Human Body

They say that humans are animals, and despite that this can be hard to express, the French artists Thomas Couderc and Clément Vauchez had no problem in doing so.

Not only have they mixed up portraits of humans and animals, they have shown how those two groups goes harmonically hand in hand. These photographs are a set of 13 that belongs to the series ”Bêtes de mode”, that means “Fashion Animals” in case you don’t understand French. If you would like to see the images live you can find them at Lafayette Galleries in Paris, but the thing is when you see the portraits live, you will spot the human from one angle and the animal from another.

This is because the images look like they’re made out of special blue and red gel, or at least that is what the creators wanted them to be, but they decided at the very end to use colored projection lights instead to get the right effects for this specific gallery installation.

I’ve maybe interpreted the purpose with the photo montages wrong, but we all know that art is an individual and open-minded thing, so analyze it however you want.
