THE BLANK CONTEMPORARY ART99 WORDS WITH ANNAMARIA AJMONE
Jura, September 2021. Jean Marc, the ethologist who accompanies us howls, we wait in religious silence for an answer. I’m afraid to breathe. In the forest at night you wait. They suppose they might pass through this area. At night in the forest you perceive other creatures, you do not see them, you feel their eyes on your skin, while you search in that black thickness too.Following animal tracks means abandoning our human way of looking at the world; borrowing the gaze of another creature, grasping its actions, reading space through another gaze. Trying to transform, the attempt is the first move.
