"I put a hand over roots and leafs of trees and threaded my stare in between the openings of nature, I found you and felt the beauty slipping between my fingers, why did you ask me to go? Why did you leave me alone?"
"Hunt Me Tender" is an audiovideo project by Fabio Orsi and Valentina Besegher. The work explores with super8 and sound recordings the slow steady flow of the events, lights and shadows in everyone's life as well as a "crystallization of life", a kind of captivity of the soul into an embalmed body. The super8 films have been taken from the family archive of the musician Fabio Orsi and edited by the visual artist Valentina Besegher, who shooted the original movies of the embalmed animals in their natural habitat, the plants and the woods. Fabio Orsi uses field recording, instruments and environmental drones.
