Artist: Kracina, Damijan
Title: Kracina TV
Duration: 00:06:24
Year: 1995
Genre: Installation Art / Exhibition
Country: Slovenia
 
SYNOPSIS
A hyper-realistic latex sculpture of the artist stands in the middle of a room in Kapelica Gallery, where the artist first presented the installation. The sculpture’s low pedestal is connected to seven monitors into which the figure gazes, while light boxes show photographs of cats run over by cars. The installation shows death doubled, or the absence of life. The cats are dead, and the statue, too, is lifeless. The images of dead cats not only draw attention to the cruel human attitude to animals and the cost of the human desire for speed, but also criticise the media’s portrayal of reality. The bloody cats remind us of the bloody television scenes presented to the viewers on a daily basis. Usually, shocking, bloody and spectacular television reports on the suffering of other creatures do not provoke powerful reactions, but are passively received. The ‘reality’ of TV images does not prompt ‘action’. Animals are the central motif of the artist’s work.
