Among the works included in the show is ’s
trio of ceramic sculptures, Win, Place, Show
(2015). As its title implies, this piece stands as stark commentary on hunting for sport (as opposed to hunting for sustenance). Arrayed in a row along one of the gallery’s walls, the heads and front legs of a deer, a wild boar, and a pig protrude like mounted hunting trophies. These animals are painted entirely white, and from all parts of their flesh and features, small tree branches emerge. They therefore read as both animal and tree, and suggest that hunting destroys not only the animals unlucky enough to be shot, but also the finely tuned balance of life in the forest itself.
