This is a part of an extended project that took place in different location in Toronto during July 2011.
It is about carrying a stuffed deer's head as backpack through the city and natural landscape. The use of a stuffed deer head is the symbol of the relation between nature and human kind in different/opposite cultural contest. Western society shows a solid tradition for the hunt and the deer head as a trophy is the symbol of it however in the native American tradition, rituals and protective aspects are represented by wearing animal parts (fur,bones,horns…). The action of carrying around the weight of the deer head communicates metaphorically the assumption of both cultures, with no judgements or prejudices but openness of senses, acceptance and understanding.
