Huge animal faces stare at each other - all sorts of creatures united in a seemingly harmonic environment. Feeding, sharing, falling in love. Kevin Earl Taylor’s (1972, Charleston, USA) exhibition “Deviant instinct” at Circle Culture Gallery in Berlin Mitte intends to expose ‘the animal within’ - at least thats what the gallery states. Taylor’s animals adapt human behaviour, ereasing their instincts and rather living the grace of charity. I was personally quite fascinated with the painting “The Translator,” which displays a hare, a spider and an insect-eating plant. The spider translates, whereas the hare and the plant turn into dripping paint. This composition is as easy, as it is hyponotising. I don’t know whether this show intends to guide to an utopia, or a dystopia, but it is definitely worth visiting and finding out yourself. The exhibition runs until the 16th of November.
