ZOO - Forced Migration

Johanna Väisänen

In the video the narrow film from Hamburg Hagenbeck Zoo (filmed in 1980) is combined with the stuffed animals in the warehouse of the Kuopio Natural History Museum. The work equates zoo animals with pets; the film is reflected in the greyhound herd which carries the image in their flanks.
