The last shroud

This film records my decision to remove the crow body from the shroud revealing the shadowy stain beneath. I also decide to leave the butcher bird’s body stuck to the canvas. Although I found the crow’s body beautiful, I could see the objectification once the work hung in the gallery. The presence of the crow shroud stain however counteracts the objectification of the butcher bird remains due to visual subservience to the crow who feeds on death.

A week later a murder of crows had gathered at the body of their own kind creating a cacophony as they fought over the remains.
