The deer is an animal which is native to almost all the continents, making it an important part of the ecosystem, and giving it an important role in the life of both the prehistoric and modern-day man. Decapitation represents an act that separates the head of a living creature from its body. “The Unknown“ series contains the motif of strong symbolism and pronounced context in the decapitated deer. Over time, the deer becomes part of the cultural heritage of humanity, and gains it’s position in the traditional and religious parts of human life. By the act of decapitation, a duality of symbols is created, when seeing this animal dubbed the “master of the forest” in many cultures, act also as a representation of the animal victims in modern hunting. By positioning the deer in an undefined space, the white void, the viewer’s perception of the animal is shifted, placing the focus on the state of lifelessness. The physical deformation depicted brings into question the themes of individual and collective identity, and expands on examining personal attitudes in the ethics and morality of the practice. By researching the relationship of humans and animals in modern society, I decisively present my impression using different visual mediums in my work, and show my activist attitude. Stepping out of this comfort zone, reexamining, and reorganizing the habits of the observer of my work is my main intention. In an environment where the society developed its culture with the philosophy of “at the expense of others”, the focus is on the moment of shifting the responsibility and searching for support in others. “The Unknown“ represent exactly that – they are the symbols of the innocent victims of tradition, with the basis of taking an other’s life by force. Is it necessary, and is it justifiable to excuse it by characterizing it as a “passion” or a “sport” are the questions The Unknown series is trying to answer.
