In her ongoing series “Les Temps Modernes” (“Modern Times”), French artist Anne-Catherine Becker-Echivard creates elaborate dioramas of everyday life that are populated by human-like figures with fish heads. Each diorama takes up to three months to build. When the diorama is finished, Becker-Echivard purchases fresh fish, decapitates them, and adds them to the scene. The fish bodies are sent to the kitchen, where they become dinner. Becker-Echivard has been working on the series since 1997.
