Animal Skulls and Other Figures
“On a long walk around the area of my studio I found a dead, desiccated crow. I walked on, and then after a while turned back. Along the way I found a plastic sack.

I don’t want to go back to working with animal skulls because the only place for such things in Europe is exotic anthropology. Still, it is unusual to find a dead crow in the city.” [full text here]
