Righteous anger

A review of Natural History at Toronto’s Justina M. Barnicke Gallery.

. . . Equally revealing is Volker Seding’s photograph of a rhinoceros trapped in a tiny “jungle room” in a Chicago zoo. Surrounded by cheesy representations (fake rocks, a ghastly mural) of a generalized, Lion King Africa, the once powerful animal is dwarfed by misperceptions, figurative and literal. There is so much righteous anger in this photograph, so much wrongness on display, that it is difficult to view without increasing one’s blood pressure.
