The film and VR work documents the artist’s consistent but hopeless attempts to restore her castrated rabbit’s libido. These include interviews with veteriniarians; the creation of a sculptural sex doll for the rabbit, professionaly produced as a cinematic prop – a sculpture meticulously made only from one side, to be captured from a certain angle in a specific frame; and the production of a customized VR headset for a rabbit, offering a seductive VR experience.
Throughout the video, it is nor clear what is true and what is fiction, and if the rabbit is indeed the subject of this experiment; an experiment which can be seen as equally deranged as castrating a rabbit in the first place. The puzzling imagery and amorphous narrative are submerged in a tragic moment of libidinal loss, and raise questions regarding the liability of art, the probity of cinema and human-animal relations.
