An exhibition at the Musée d'art et d'histoire, Chateau Gontier, France, as part of a larger project curated by Anabelle Hulaut and David Michael Clarke. Selected contemporary works are installed in relation to the museum's collection and each other, without hierarchical distinction.
Kivland exhibited: Je suis une femme moderne, a number of stuffed squirrels, sporting red ribbons around their adorable necks, holding antique silk ladies' knickers in their paws.The underwear is embroidered with the phrase 'je suis une femme moderne' in Ecolier script, the handwriting taught in French primary school; in the Salle des femmes, she exhibited two stuffed foxes bearing silk négligées in the jaws, running out from under two 19th-century armchairs, a work entitled Mes bêtes sauvages; and a silk buslte, velvet bustle pad, suspended from deer hooves under a deer head. This last work is activated from time to time as visitors to the exhibition and invigilators wear it.
