Lifes of Grass
Mathilde Roussel est une artiste française travaillant à Paris. Son travail “questionne la nature humaine dans ce qu’elle a de plus imperceptible”. Chacune de ses œuvres dévoile en effet des évolutions, mutations souvent discrètes qui s’opèrent pourtant en chacun de nous. Pour ce faire, ses installations reposent le plus souvent sur des matériaux et idées très simples mais néanmoins frappantes..

GoatMan

I tried to become a goat to escape the angst inherent in being a human. The project became an exploration of how close modern technology can take us to fulfilling an ancient human dream: to take on characteristics from other animals. But instead of the ferocity of a bear, or the perspective of a bird, the characteristic most useful in modern life is something else; being present in the moment perhaps.

Anyway I ended up in the Alps, on four legs, at a goat farm, with a prosthetic rumen strapped to my chest, eating grass, and becoming a goat.
