A wall installation of drawings from the Primates series. A part from Kliger's solo Exhibition in The OpenART Biennale, Orebro, Sweden 2017 

The drawings depicting various human-ape hybrids, creating a world that is seemingly familiar yet extremely strange. It remains unclear who or what these ape-people are - are they a previous stage in human evolution or rather, the next one; what is their natural habitat; what do they feel, or think. They defy any and all definition, yet they create a sense of familiarity and compassion through their all too human expressions, hand gestures and sitting positions.
