Animals and More Animals

(Un animal, des animaux)

Imported Print

For over thirty years the Zoology Hall of the Museum of Natural History in Paris was closed to the public while thousands of stuffed animals were abandoned inside. Animals wittily documents the Hall’s renovation, recording the three years of intense, detail-driven preparation to bring the various inhabitants back to “life.” An incisive testimony to the human desire, or compulsion, to preserve and document.
