De chair, poils et plumes : l'objet animal et l'art contemporain

Abstract : Long neglected, animals have once again, especially since the 1980s, been placed at the center of contemporary art . Against all expectations, animals serve less the cause of ecology than to reassure humans of their own status, as we are told by Marion Duquerroy, whose dissertation on this subject will be published by Presses du Réel. The history of animal embalming and then of their naturalization and their placement under glass says more about us than about them; the same goes for the widespread craze of cutting creatures up into pieces (“botched taxidermy,” to use Steve Barker’s expression).
