In five short video sequences Kim Dotty Hachmann gives an
unusual and fascinating glimpse of the animal. The sequences
reduce our metaphoric hints toward the animal sphere to nudity.

In burrow I the unusual animal is lying on the ground. She is preg-
nant. The same picture is copied and placed the wrong way round,
mirrored as a shiny doublelayer over the original. She awakens;
lustily she is noisily licking her own phantasmatic body until it dis-
appears. As if to ward off she sends a gaze out of the picture only
to sluggishly fall asleep again. The game repeats itself and - in a
converted position - comes back to the starting point.
