Menagerie, 2015

 

Short film recording movements of captive animals, as well as reflections and noises from humans. Charlotte believes that zoos exist principally for the benefit of people and their entertainment, the welfare of animals being a secondary albeit essential factor.

"If a human being was confined in an area with the same spacial restrictions that wild animals kept in cavity here in todays zoological collections, this human would be living in a space approximately the size of a telephone box" Jordi Casamitjana, 2001
