Introduction

The earliest images in human culture reveal the recognition of the power and dignity of animals in their own right. In current times where the environment is mostly seen in terms of resources, awaking old myths about animals and nature is a way to empower and create respect for the natural world.

Mari-Leen Kiipli creates a contemporary fable about personal transformation and human-nature relationships blurring the existential encounters between different forms of life. In her video, she expresses the state of standing between light and shadow, uncertainty and suspense.

The video was first exhibited together with Kristi Kongi‘s painting installation at Kogo gallery’s exhibition Secret Whistle in the Forest. 

Come to see the video at Liste Art Fair Basel or view it online on Liste Showtime.
