"…her images are packed with as much violence, sexual tension, and mystery as any David Lynch film. Her photos wouldn’t look out of place next to Cindy Sherman’s on a gallery wall. But, unlike Lynch or Sherman, Leen found tension in the real world, and her subjects weren’t actors—they were just everyday people living out their lives."
— James Pomerantz, The Surreal World of Nina Leen

Le genie de l’espece by Wolfgang Paalen, 1938 [T]he surrealist use of bones as material in connection with war and destruction becomes evident in Wolfgang Paalen’s 1938 bone pistol Le Genie de l’Espece, dating from the eve of the Second World War. In this work, chicken bones simulate the shape of the deadly weapon in the moulded trough of a velvet-lined pistol casket. Cause and effect seem to be coalesced in a matrix - the bones, arranged as a fantastic firearm, present death as the deliberate intention and inevitable result of the use of weaponry and are thus meant as an unmistakeable warning of conflict resolution by force.
