Dog hair, beige thread

Être bête (Being a beast/dumb) invents a procedure of co-production and delegates to an uncontrollable event (the death of my dogs) its final shape.
While combing my dogs, I roll their hair into balls that are then sowed together. This overlaying-sculpture is an attempt at fusion for an impossible transformation, a unbridled will to be one with the pack.
This wearable molt questions the possibility of a bestial-mankind and our capacity to trust or muzzle our natural instinct.
