Showing at the Clark Art Institute from 27 June to 12 October 2020, this is the first solo exhibition of Lin May Saeed’s work in the US.s Animal rights, a theme central to the ouput of this German artist with Iraqi origins, will be approached both softly and vigorously, through sculptures in the style of Mesopotamian bas-reliefs, and with scenes showing animals being freed from slaughterhouses carved on grids or scenes of assistance between humans and animals. Combining poetry and activism, Lin May Saeed’s empathic perspective, tinged with humour, restores faith in otherness and boldly affirms the advent of ‘cruelty free’.
