Past Lives

 

In a silent museum storage facility, row upon row of antler trophy mounts are held in trust for future generations. Shrouded in plastic, each pair of antlers represents and embodies a unique encounter between human and animal, between the hunter and the hunted.

What do these objects mean in an era where nature conservation is at the forefront of the collective cultural consciousness? How might these past lives be enlivened for the public?
