All of the animals chosen are indigenous to the area in which they are placed. This brings up the obvious issue of the impact of urbanization. Also by strategically selecting which sites to showcase their works, the Berlin/Paris-based Neozoon attempts to make a statement about society’s captor-captive relationship with animals. In Berlin, for example, Neozoon placed silhouetted bears just yards away from where zoo bears have been caged for decades. In Paris, Neozoon created a flock of fur-coat lambs right outside one of Paris’ largest historic slaughterhouse districts.
