La Pieta, 2014

Single channel HD video (5min), calico rabbit, woven jute rug, woven jute tapestries, beeswax, framed photograph, wooden structure. First shown at Interlude Gallery, January 2015. Abridged version shown at Warringah Space 2014.

 

The artist sings an art-explaining song to a giant, dead rabbit (Beuys did it once, why not?). 
 

She asks the rabbit: Why did The World gve us songs? Does singing them banish us from Nature? Where does that leave us? For heaven's sake, what does the world want from us? Is there any way to escape death? No? But not even if we sing really loudly? The rabbit does not answer, of course. The rabbit is dead.
