Dogs: ‘Exhilaration’


His physique may not be best suited to it, but the exhilaration he experiences will be just as real!

This is the continuation of a series of personal works with dogs as my subject – the animal species that humans have the most intimate relationship with. This sculpture formed part of my exhibition at the annual Kunst in Sendling event that took place in October 2020, in Munich, Germany.

A dogs advanced social skills mean that they carry great social and symbolic weight in society.
For me it is more personal. I don’t want to project exaggerated human feelings onto them, but rather consider their own subjectivity. To recognise that within the companionship between a human and a dog we find, not just a shared language, but also the mutual creation of self.
