Otherly Seers is an exhibition that displays several avenues of research focused on the structures of knowledge and representation of vision, emotions and otherness in non-human animals. Based on four books, and using hyperbole, play, repetition and absurdity, the exhibition fantasises about how the constrictions and limits of human perception lead to speculation and fabulation.
