Site specific sculpture made from branches, potatoes and glue

Insight to the mating season for a fictional animal species were gender and biological roles are explored. The females are mobile while the males are non-mobile and reside high up in branches in their dwellings. The mating selection process is led by the females who can move around and choose the appropriate spouse. The females take the lead, do not mate inclusively and have many partners. The males are permanently stuck, carry and take care of the offspring.
