Living Beings Squatting Institutions
 
2020
Series of Sculptures
Including the Peregrine falcons of the Tate Modern the Weimaraner dog of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston bats of the National Museum of Cambodia polar bears around Artica Svalbard.


Living Beings Squatting Institutions is comprised of five sculptures which merge animals with the global cultural institutions they inhabit, including the Peregrine falcons of the Tate Modern the Weimaraner dog of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston bats of the National Museum of Cambodia polar bears around Artica Svalbard. Whilst Öğüt highlights how mankind has built spaces to purposefully exclude others, the artist also nods to how living beings and cultures in their many different forms will find ways to coexist.
