Artist's Statement

AKI INOMATA’s work includes many collaborations with animals. Her Why Not Hand Over a “Shelter” to Hermit Crabs? series, in which she gives hermit crabs shells made with a 3D printer, brings to mind migrants, refugees, and their ability to swap nationalities. For I Wear the Dog’s Hair, and the Dog Wears My Hair, she makes herself a cape out of her dog’s hair and a smaller cape out of her own hair. Wearing the dog hair cape, the artist has the dog wear the cape made from her hair so that they are wearing each other’s coats.
