Børre Sæthre's Bambi

saethre_bambi1.jpg

Installations by Børre Sæthre at the Loevenbruck Gallery in Paris in 2005.  The work was entitled "Untitled 1, Powdered by Zero (end of the Bambi Cycle)."  The gallery describes Sæthre's work as cinemagraphic dream scenes filled with hidden fantasies and secrets:

"At once austere and saturated with concealed fantasies, his spaces (sculptural and reconstructed environments, light, soundscapes and moving images) comprise confessions, secrets, and voyeuristic longings that linger within seemingly impermeable interiors."  

I'll let you decide about the ethics of exhibiting dead bambis - does it matter where they came from? See more of Sæthre's work at:
