Intro
(...) an art exhibition that explores our relationship with animals through the works of ten jewellery artists. (...)
Animals have been present in art and culture for millennia. Ranging from personal talismans to as-trological birth signs, we humans have employed animal characteristics to guide and describe our-selves ever since the day we began to believe that we are not one of them. ANIMAL is an art exhibi-tion that explores our relationship with animals through the works of ten jewellery artists. Each artist endeavours to use reflection, analysis, compilation, and debate to further understand meanings, materials, and/or characteristics of animals.

When a human is called ‘a dog’, ‘a horse’, or ‘a snake’, we know what that means. But what does it mean to a dog, a horse, or a snake to be called ‘a human’
