影片的素材截取自网络上的动物纪录片片段,在进行混合剪辑之后,让生活在温带地区的动物去追逐捕捉处于热带草原和热带雨林地区的动物。带着热带为何更容易产生殖民地而不是强大的国家的疑问,去重新审视两个区域的自然生物。殖民者对热带地区的驯服过程让我联想到动物世界中的弱肉强食,从某种意义上来说,把自然界原本的秩序变为本不存在的无序,以提供另一种角度去认识人力(权力)的改造行为。


影像中特意去掉了原本素材中的空间、时间的原有逻辑,只留下其地理因素,试图让这些奔跑中的动物去映射人类国家/社会之间的强弱关系。这是一种无序的秩序——温带和热带的动物相遇,不因其天生的大小强弱,却因其地理身份而划分追逐/被逐的阵营。


后期中加入了温柔浪漫的法语配音,与激烈奔跑的画面产生一种疏离的时空错觉,就仿佛这是一场诗意的政治。也因此,我们得以注视那个后殖民的幽灵在黑暗中浮现。

The video “The Romantic Hunter” is taken and edited from animal documentary clips on the Internet, showing animals living in temperate regions chasing animals intropical areas. With the question of "Why is it easier for the tropics to be colonies rather than powerful countries", the artist turned to re-examine the natural biological state of the two regions, which also continued her thinking about the relationship between nature and unnaturalness. “The Romantic Hunter” removes the original logic of the documentary material, leaving only factors related togeography; by changing the original order of the natural world into an on-existent order, the artist provides another perspective to understand "human (power)” transformation, but also allows us to gaze the post-colonial ghost still emerging in the dark.
