The Hunt , video 1’14”, loop, 2016
The video The Hunt uses found footage of amateur animal hunting videos that the artist discovered on various online hunting platforms. From the extremely long documented hunting processes, the artist extracts only the ending sequences of the final shooting and presents them in a never ending loop. While the original videos are an emotional documentation of the act of killing, often illustrated with loud rock music and personal comments on the excitement of shooting, the video concentrates on the short, brutal moment of dying. In doing so, the artist isolates the video material from its frightening background and shows the silent moment of death in its pure and uncompromising form.
