Why Look At Animals? is the title of the work Maria Papadimitriou presented at the 56 Venice Biennale. The Athens-born artist participates to the Biennale with a work which focuses on the relationship between reason and instinct. Maria Papadimitriou's installation is a shop, a vestige of the past that sells animal hides and leather, transferred from the city of Volos to the central but "ruined" landscape of Greek pavilion. The AGRIMIKÁ are animals that coexist with humans, but resist domestication. This relationship of humans to animals becomes a contemporary allegory of the dispossessed and the resistant and sparks concerns ranging from politics and history to economics and traditions, ethics and aesthetics, fear of the foreign and the incomprehensible.
