  • La série “Taxidermy Lesson” dont fait partie “Kendall II” traite d’acceptation, de désir et du besoin d’attention. La scène se déroule dans une pièce anonyme et banale. Teodora Axente considère que les nouveaux comportements sociaux sont régis par des règles aussi rigides que celles de la taxidermie. Elle exprime et décrit ainsi le terrible glissement de l’homme, d’un animal social à un être seul, isolé, pris dans une pose figée, transformé en son propre trophée.

    The explanatory process about craving for attention, acceptance and desire displayed in the “Taxidermy Lesson” series (to which “Kendall II” artwork belongs) is taking place against the most common household backgrounds, as to underline the fact that these new social and private rituals, similar to the rules of taxidermy, have now become our generally accepted normality. Thus, Teodora Axente both states and depicts the terrible change in the condition of the contemporary man from a social animal into a lonely being, clogged up into a stuffed and stiffened pose, converted into a trophy of the self.
