Forming a likeness between the animal kingdom and the human form, hungarian artist Flora Borsi has formed the series ‘animeyed’, which creates curious hybrid beings from two different species. The collection of self-portraits sees Borsi situated side-by-side six separate creatures: a cat, dove, blowfish, goldfish, snake and hare.
