GRINNING MACHINES AND A CLOSEMOUTHED GROWL

In collaboration with Toon Fibbe

In the parallel digital universe of the internet, there is a subculture of people who deep down identify themselves not as human, but as an animal or mystical being. They carry the soul, for example, of a wolf, a fox, a cat, a fairy, a vampire, an angel or a demon. They mostly meet on internet forums where they express their otherness, look for explanations for their animal or mythical origins, and share tips on how to function in a society in which they are so significantly different. They call themselves ‘Otherkin’.At Kunsthuis Syb, Nov 2015
