Artist Beth Cavener's works usually addressed controversial and darker side of human condition
by her anthropomorphized
animal sculptures. You
can easily recognized human emotions and expression within her animal figures. On a surface,
her sculptures looks like a normal cute animals but looking closely you can
feel the human psychology and emotions.
Cavener's statement: "There are primitive animal instincts lurking in
our own depths, waiting for the chance to slide past a conscious moment. The
sculptures I create focus on human psychology, stripped of context and

surface, these figures are simply feral and domestic individuals suspended in a
moment of tension. Beneath the surface they embody the impacts of aggression,
territorial desires, isolation, and pack mentality.
Both human and animal interactions show patterns of intricate, subliminal
gestures that betray intent and motivation. The things we leave unsaid are far
more important than the words we speak out-loud to one another. I have learned
to read meaning in the subtler signs; a look, the way one holds one’s hands,

The latest edition of its Women's Tales series, Miu Miu commissioned director Agnès Varda to create an"anti-fairy tale" film. The story involves three magic buttons, a farm girl (played by new face Jasmine Thiré), and a Cinderella-esque gown made from a bolt of fuchsia satin.
Jasmine , the 14-year-old girl with braces takes a break from milking the goat. Her local postman has delivered a surprise. She opens it up. Out floats a magical magenta ball dress ten times her teenage size. “I am curious,” she says, and enters the folds of the dress. Jasmine takes us on a modern anti-fairy tale through caves and stalagmites, streets and shop windows, obsessions and everyday empowerment. The story gently reverses the clichés of girlhood. Jasmine prefers school uniform and education to the easy allure of a Cinderella lifestyle.
