Shopping Mall Animal Art

Clarisse Rebotier's Human-Like Animals Symbolize Materialism

— July 14, 2016 — Art & Design
Clarisse Rebotier is a plastic artist and photographer based in France who is known for her pieces that depict human-like animals in a context that prompts a rich commentary.

While a past project, titled 'Animétro,' shows wildlife on public transit in the city, 'Animalls' shows the creatures slinking through the shopping aisles of a mall. The subjects are made to emulate human actions and desires of vanity, with an orangutan starring longingly at a shelf filled with hair-removal products being an example of the latter.

Other images show a rooster perched alongside cartons of eggs, a chimpanzee swinging through a selection of condiments, tigers looking at bottles of wine and a bat hanging upside down in the hygiene section. With this, Clarisse Rebotier uses the human-like animals to depict a connection between the two.
Trend Themes
1. Anthropomorphic Art - Opportunity for artists to create animal-like figures that embody human characteristics in order to provoke thought and commentary on society.
2. Materialism Critique - Opportunity to explore the connection between animal behavior and human consumer culture, highlighting the effects of materialism on society.
3. Creative Advertising - Opportunity for brands to use imaginative and unconventional animal imagery in advertising campaigns to grab attention and spark conversations.
Industry Implications
1. Art and Design - Artists can explore anthropomorphic art as a means of social commentary and expression, creating unique and thought-provoking artworks.
2. Consumer Goods - Brands can leverage materialism critique to develop more conscious and sustainable products, catering to consumers looking for alternatives to excessive consumption.
3. Marketing and Advertising - Advertisers can incorporate creative animal imagery in campaigns to captivate audiences and generate buzz around their products or services.
