In the video work Mr. Deer, we are confronted by a jealous and agitated voice that outwits its prey, a buck, through gentle manipulation alternating with rhythmic magic spells. By playing with seduction, submission, and superiority, the relationship between desire and the death drive is addressed. The camera follows the voyeur’s gaze and demand in a nearly pornographic fashion. The earth is meat and sex and the buck is drawn down into the mud. Its stiff horns and muscular body burrow themselves deeper and deeper into the bottomless swamp.
