"May the Horse Live in Me"
Artist: Marion Laval-Jeantet
In an effort to “explore trans-species relationships” this past August, French performance artist Marion Laval-Jeantet spent several months receiving small doses of animal antibodies to prepare her system for a giant injection of horse blood plasma. Post-exchange, the born again white stallion paraded around with her donor before a group of observers in a “communication ritual” while wearing a set of hooved stilts. Of the experience, Laval-Jeantet noted, “I was not normal in my body.” Sounds like an understatement.
