Artist Liz Sexton Turns Little Animals Into Human Scale

Anthropocentrism is the philosophy that man is the center of the world. It is this theory that Liz Sexton fights through her hybrid creatures.

The artist spends several weeks designing masks of foxes, owls and other wild animals in papier mache, which are then worn by humans. These hybrid creatures are then placed in unnatural environments (a rat near the metro lines or a porcupine fish out of the water).

“I often work on species facing existential threats, such as marine life, though I suppose this uncertainty applies to most animals at this point. Photographing the animal heads worn out of their natural habitats, and in our immediate world, highlights the displacement that many creatures experience.”
