Primeval Love Kills the Natural History Museum LAJuxtapoz // Monday, 26 Apr 2010
On this important show, Visell states:
“I created Primeval Love when I started thinking about being a tiny spec in the history of the world, how humans have barely been here, and that the destruction of one civilization is birth for another. This show is one of the possible paths life may have taken on Earth and traces of it can be found in our lives today. This world is void of oppression by men and the female characters are the stewards of natural order.
“I chose the Natural History Museum for this exhibition because, while it is a museum of actual creatures that lived on the same spot we are now, it’s easy to become awestruck and think of their world as mythical and something from dreams.”
