The artist Joanna Rytel represents diverse animals in a series of performances. The majority were domestic animals like cows, sheep, geese and horses. The interesting thing about these animals is their largely indifferent reaction. It seems as though they have seen almost everything in the course of their dealings with humans, almost but not quite everything.
Monkey Performance is different. Here the artist strips behind glass in front of a group of monkeys. She is received rather as a welcome distraction than as an annoyance or as something boringly familiar.
