Lin May SaeedArrival of the Animals
For the past fifteen years, Lin May Saeed (b. 1973, Germany) has focused on the lives of animals and human-animal relations. With empathy and wit, she tells stories, both ancient and modern, of animal subjugation, liberation, and cohabitation with humans, working toward a new iconography of interspecies solidarity. On the occasion of her first museum solo exhibition, this catalogue illustrates Saeed’s drawings, paintings, and sculptures in materials such as paper, steel, and polystyrene foam. It includes two interpretive essays on the artist, Saeed’s own writings, and a previously untranslated text on animality and otherness.
