Artists' Statement:

Kollabs is a collaborative project between artists Luis Garcia-Nerey and Anke Schofield. In their work, Kollabs create compositions juxtaposing undomesticated animals within domestic and urban environments, highlighting the interaction between wildlife and the human experience.

In their latest series, wild animals foray into the industrial world of the concrete jungle.  The creatures exist within scenes that reflect the cyclical decay and redevelopment of the city environment.  Whether surrounded by torn advertisements or towering over buildings, the animals enter foreign worlds where they contest with urban expansion over who will dominate the landscape.
