France Pillière's latest two paper sculptures express her concerns about the suffering humans create by anthropomorphizing animals, especially great apes. The title comes from Henry Beston's, "The Outermost House: a year of life on the great beach of Cape Cod.". Written in 1928, it is the best description of the animal world that the artist has yet read. Here is the reference:
"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth." Henry Beston
