Transitory Inhabitantâ€ is an exploration of displacement and alienation by animal that is transposed upon the unfamiliar urban surrounding. As the wild feral animal is taken out from its natural habitat and inhabited the inexplicably human space, the emotional connection of homelessness, isolation and displaced existence can be experienced. The animal seems to willingly sacrifice its way of living and accept a new lifestyle, blending into the human world by exploiting its adaptive and opportunistic nature. The staged narrative relies on the use of a feral animal and man-made convention of comfort as an allegorical scenario that draws the viewers into unexpected juxtapositions between the struggle for subsistence and the sense of belonging.
The site-specific installation comprises of a taxidermy feral pig sleeping on a bed with the consideration of placement and staging in regards to the timing of the viewing experience, creating surprise and unexpected encountering with the work.
