berenjas, bearscoat

The ‘bearscoat’ is specially made by Fleur for her lover. All the bears are second hand bears.

We humans have a schizophrenic relationship with animals. We often find animals sweet and cute. They appeal to the imagination and we often attribute human qualities to them. We make stuffed animals and they appear in fables, fairy tales, stories and films. We keep pets and connect with them.
At the same time, we often eat meat, some wear fur and keep building, which means that animal habitats disappear.

The teddy bear is a mutilated caricature of a real bear. She is soft and harmless. The teddy bear is the most loved stuffed animal, an icon. He symbolizes the relationship between humans and animals par excellence.

The bears are shaped into a jacket, they form a second skin. It offers protection, but it also hides. She hides her lover in the coat and makes him something else: he becomes a huge animal that you can hug.
In addition to being her lover, the man is also a symbol of mankind.
The jacket made of 'skinned' hugs, as a fashionable phenomenon, symbolizes the spirit of the times and the dominance of mankind.

MADREAEON, ILIVEMYLIFETREECYCLE
I am literally part of the recycle system, when I die, my body will be burned or decompose and live on as little particles in other things. I have also given life, which makes me part of the reproductive system. With the work 'MADREAEON, ILIVEMYLIFETREECYCLE' I made a portrait of myself as part of the recycle system and as a transferee of life. The posture of the woman is open, without a gene, the legs graceful like a Venus, the arms like branches of a tree. It is also like a blood vessel system, full of life.
