Her current series, Dominance and Affection, exemplifies how human beings interact with natural world, and in particular with animals.
She argues that in today’s evermore developed environment, our most intimate contact with nature is established through ineractions with plants and animals that have been radically altered for our purposes.
Wild animals have been turned into our companions at the expense of their nature, she argues. ‘We have genetically sculpted them into sweeter, cuter, less threatening versions of their former selves. We shower our pets with love while the same time containing or even caging them.’
Krull has concluded that no amount of love we lavish upon our pets erases the fact that the relationship is dependent upon complete domination over their existence. Her work explores this idea.
