"In my work I play with the status-power object 'fur', which stands for something luxurious, but also, in a contemporary way, for a clichéd femininity. It is also an object that is in a state of transition. Through animal rights activists, the view of fur is changing to something cruel and dead, opposed to life. So fur and its status are changing, as are the values it stands for. In the history of fur, the gender wearing it is shifting, but the image is still associated with prestige, power and status. The stands draped with fur coats are said to look like a war banner. The fur bleaching refers to the industrialization of the western female beauty industry and its standards which have global influence." – Rebekka Benzenberg
