Take Me Anywhere

Rönkkö Nastja Säde

The artist was riding a horse without a bridle or saddle. She was blindfolded and taken wherever the horse wanted to go. She wanted to give the horse all the decision-making power, so that their power-relationship was reversed. Since she could not use see, she was forced to trust the horse completely. The piece was filmed in Joshua Tree National Park in California.
