Anotherview is an artistic collective that chooses the middle way between interior design and conceptual art. They are constantly looking all over the world for new perspectives, each telling a unique story about our society and the time we live in, in their own way. They capture these on camera as a 24-hour image. Embedding in the framework means that we, as a sort of observing outsider, become part of the face of the world.
The horses in the work Les Chevaux du Pont de Gau graze in the Camargue, a nature reserve in the southeast of France. Images of this rare, old horse breed, recognisable by its white coat and mane, grazing in the swampy landscape have become a clichéd image of the region. In addition, the deterioration of their natural habitat and the appearance of various viruses have been a serious threat to the survival of this animal for years.
