White Rabbit Fever
White Rabbit Fever (2015–2016) contrasts sequences of decaying rabbits to sequences of immortal human cell lines.
There is not one definition that we use for death, there are many (clinical, biological etc). The work presents forever-growing human cancer cell lines, such as HeLa, Pa-Ju and Us-Ki, which I have been documenting, with the aid of a professor of pathology, at Haartman Institute’s laboratory in Helsinki.
The disease alluded to by the series, White Rabbit Fever, is not an actual disease, but an archetype representing the condition of being ill. The work concentrates on time in relation to life and death. White Rabbit Fever is a multi-part piece, and the presentation of which varies with each new installation.
