"Tracking" Part 3 (edition 1/3), 2020
Videowork (4min 6sec)
“A dead fox cub is lying on the side of the road. Its coat is not yet reddish brown, but rather yellowish or golden in colour. I open the car window and drive slowly past it. From what I can tell, it had perished very quickly. For a while, I think about stopping, but then I decide to drive on. Soon I start to regret my decision, but keep on going. I’ll choose another route on the way back.”
Artist work “Tracking” 2020 is a documented performance with 3 different parts. It was a part of MFA Degree Show of Uniarts Helsinki’s Acdemy of Fine Arts. The work is based on an emotional response to a wild animal killed by traffic. Artist regards her work as a series of clumsy, yet human, attempts to approach another being in respectful way. Artist marked down the places in her works where someone that she didn’t know personally passed away.
