Now on view at the newly opened Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at the University of California, Davis, HOOF & FOOT: a field study is a video installation by Bay Area artist Chris Sollars. Drawing on the interactions of students and animals on the campus of UC Davis, home to a world renowned school of veterinary medicine, Sollars engaged UC Davis faculty and students in exploratory conversations regarding the body, socialization, and the confrontation of conflict. For the resultant video installation, Sollars has paired actions by humans and animals, drawing correlations between observable behaviors and movements.
