VICTIMS OF CRIME
BRITTA’S LATEST PROJECT FOCUSES ON ILLEGAL WILDLIFE PRODUCTS
Can you tell me about your latest project, CRIMES ? I’m not 100 per cent sure yet where I am heading with it; Albrecht Dürer meets Irving Penn is my guidance at the moment, but it’ll be an organic process. CRIMES will mostly feature still-life. Humans are wiping out entire species due to sheer greed. Trophies, trinkets and the demand for worthless cures have resulted in highly structured, armed and well organised criminal gangs across the globe. For me, the scale of this is incomprehensible, but looking at the amount of confiscated wildlife products being stored at repositories across the UK and the USA, I know this is deadly serious.
