Catherine Chalmers – Food Chain

12/5 2000 — 21/5 2000

“Eating and being eaten” – this could be the concise summary of the photo series entitled “Food Chain”. The American artist Catherine Chalmers is interested in small animals and the specific ecological systems they live in, but also in
overcoming the reservation that humans have about these usually disrespected animals. Consistently, she lives with praying mantises, frogs, mice, and snakes which she breeds and studies in her New York home.
