Manipulerte Historier

Artist Katrine Kalleklev turns old portrait photographs (the sort we all know from parents or grandparents photo albums and dressing tables) into something more intriguing by adding manipulating people into animals. There's something so intriguing to me about human bodies with animal heads--from polaroids of children wearing masks to a menswear site featuring nearly every creature in the animal kingdom, I'm really drawn to this theme in art. Is it something about the animal inside of us, or the supposed similar personality traits we see across species? It might be just be the good old Greek creepiness of the Minotaur and similar creatures--the bestial nature of man himself, the monster within all of us. Whatever the reason I really can't get enough of Kalleklev's manipulated stories.
