FORGET THE JUNGLE.
Performance with Robert Steijn. Video 16/9 HD, 19 min, 2012.
You Should Never Forget The Jungle is a happy encountering -erotic and ultimately tragic- between a young deer and a hunter, around a boundary embodied by a knife. The performance begins with an hypnosis, the countdown enables a change of realities, a transformation inside the narration. The hunter is faced with an animal that looks human. Finally, while being caught in a cornelian dilemma, he shoots the deer, feeling exasperated by its dances. But this is not quite a death since it initiates a molt where limits are exceeded, prior to any ritual initiation. C.L.
