Animal, Vegetable, Mineral

Animal, Vegetable, Mineral

Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, Claudia Lorenz, 2001. Monograph.
 
Only in death in the world truly still; an observation that turns the popular painter's genre of still-life into something approaching an oxymoron (the French 'nature morte' is more literally true). Museums specialize in using still-life to argue the relationships between a thing and its place in the world. Mineral, Vegetable, Animal is a story told in the tradition of museums and, like all natural history collections found in museums, uses dead things to tell the story of life.– Claudia Lorenz
