LUNE LÉOTY – GRAND HOTEL

 

Lune Léoty was born in Le Mans, France. She studied graphic design and video art at the ESA Institute of Cambrai and also art at the Kiad Institute in Canterbury, England. She has had exhibitions in France, Belgium and Germany. She combines video installations in her work with drawings and performances. The main emphasis of her artistic activity is the dialogue between people and their search for a way of living at ease with themselves within society. Lune Léoty lives and works in Berlin and Brussels.

 

The zoo as a public space in which animals of different types can be found is both a place for research and discovery and for entertainment. Many species of the animals have become extremely rare and even threatened by extinction. Just as in a large hotel the zoo staff ensures comfort, lodging, service and meals for the animals. It is the staff's job to widen continually its knowledge of zoology and to give the individual animal the possibility of leading a life which conforms as closely as possible to the life it would lead in its natural surroundings.

The title of the exhibition "Art for Animals" presupposes that the animals have a certain understanding for art although the basic assumption is that art is something entirely human. Who knows? Perhaps the animals do feel addressed by these artistic overtures.

Lune Léoty's project goes so far to suppose that the animals even need art. To grant the animals an opportunity to enjoy art we should therefore offer the greatest degree of comfort: a place where they feel well, let off steam with their friends, have regular meals, and also have the advantage of a friendly and considerate service. In "Grand Hotel", the title of her current work in Halle Zoo, the animal enjoys all the advantages of the hospitality of a good hotel together with a continual modernisation of the premises. The project "Grand Hotel" is an installation in which all details of a hotel for animals have been thought through. In Halle Mountain Zoo the characteristic features of a hotel have been added – starting with the reception and including information and safety signage.
