L MD ART Gallery in Paris is holding an exhibition “Between Worlds”, showing works of Polixeni Papapetrou who has photographed children acting as animals in the Australian landscape. In these images, the children wear animal masks, which lets them inhabit an intermediary position that separates children from adults and human from animal. Papapetrou sees children as being between worlds: between the world of infancy and adulthood.
