From the publisher: 
 
“Jane Alexander’s hybrid mutants speak to the porous borders between humans and other forms of animal life. Alexander acts as a non-judgemental surveyor mapping the forces, interests, and passions at play in human behaviour. Her sculptures, installations, and photomontages are firmly rooted in her South African experience. They also transcend locality, revealing the disparity felt every day around the world between the rhetoric of peace and decorum and the unruly human capacity for oppression and violence. Alexander’s compelling body of work throws into relief the asymmetric relations and practices that preclude access for so many people to a free and dignified existence.”
 
In addition to its many photographs, this comprehensive catalogue includes a foreword by Elsie McCabe Thompson, president of the Museum for African Art (NY), an essay by the editor Pep Subirós, and written contributions from Kobena Mercer, Lize van Robbroeck, Simon Njami, Ashraf Jamal, and Jane Alexander. Selected texts on the artist’s work include reflections by Sander Gilman, Lucy Alexander, John Peffer, Okwui Enwezor, Julie McGee, Ivor Powell, Ingo Gildenhard, and Michael Sadgrove.
