Takeover: III. Mind Takeover Rabbit 314
Hsu Che-Yu

7 Minutes

Repeat: Dec 15-16 ET

With a rabbit’s dead body in hand, a glove puppetry performer reenacts the movements of rabbits as imagined by humans. The project was initiated by the death of a laboratory rabbit, and was inspired by the artist’s family memories. The artist’s grandma served in an animal laboratory for thirty years, during which, due to the particularity of her job, she had to dissect living animals for observation and experiments.

This screening is part of Mind Takeover, the third chapter of the online program Takeover curated by Julian Ross for e-flux Video & Film, and unfolding in six chapters between September 22 and December 15, 2022, with the films and videos of each chapter streaming for two weeks.

Return to III. Mind Takeover

Hsu Che-Yu (b. 1985) works as an artist and primarily creates animations, videos, and installations that feature the relations between media and memories. What matters to the artist is not simply the history of events traceable through media, but also the construction and visualization of memories, be they private or collective. In 2022, he begins his two-year art residency in Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.
