Each man kills the thing he loves -Oscar Wilde

Humans have a uniquely strange and troubled history with our fellow creatures: we love them, fear them, protect them and exploit them. We breed, collect, nurture and kill them. Animals have provided food and shelter; they have tipped the balance in warfare, and their companionship continues to provide a living bond to an increasingly fragmented planet. Humans and other animals are indivisible.

But what happens when love goes terribly wrong? What happens when discovery turns to conquest, when the pursuit of beauty leaves ruin in its wake? What happens when possession leads to madness?

Evan Michelson is an antiques dealer, lecturer, accumulator and aesthete; she tirelessly indulges a lifelong pursuit of all things obscure and melancholy. She currently lives in another place and time. Michelson is a Morbid Anatomy Museum founding member and a scholar in residence
