Je criais contre la vie. Ou pour elle
I Was Crying out at Life. Or for It
During a hunt, a herd of deer turn on the pack of dogs pursuing them, turning the hunted into the hunters. Vergine Keaton sends the animals in I Was Crying out at Life. Or for It through landscapes that disintegrate in an apocalypse-like manner, only to be recreated in a new guise. As a basis for the scenery she used pictorial motifs from 19th century engravings.
