More about Wolf Talks: The Wolf Talks exhibition is an arts-based research project, created by Nico Carpentier, that combines photography and sound art to analyse and rethink the power dynamics of the discursive-material relationships between human and non-human animals. The series of 12 photographs combines wolf portraits, cat-face filters and super-imposed theoretical questions. Deeply conscious of all contradictions related to humans speaking on behalf of animals, this exhibition experiments with a lupocentric position to induce empathy and respect.
Collaboration / Support: This research has been supported by Mistra, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research, through the research programme Mistra Environmental Communication, by the Institute of Communication Studies and Journalism at Charles University, Czech Republic, by SQRIDGE, and by Fotograf Festival.
The exhibitions in Okara and Lahore, Pakistan are supported by AMCAP, the University of the Punjab, its Institute of English Studies and its Human Rights Chair, and the University of Okara.
