AboutThis September at MEANTIME, Juliet MacDonald continues her project tracking the available history of Alpha, a female chimpanzee test-subject born in the 1930s. Through reams of academic texts and behavioural reports, Juliet has unearthed many of the tests and examinations Alpha was subject to, with a particular interest in those involving drawing and compulsive mark-making, the condition of confinement, the quality of scientific objectivity and the possibility of subject-hood. Becoming her own test-subject within the confines of MEANTIME, Juliet has here become the particular animal drawing in a particular environment.
