Cats and Dogs – ‘Snow’
Posted on July 14, 2011 by unit24
‘Snow’ (2011, 5.26 mins) by Roeloff Bakker is part of the group exhibition ‘Cats and Dogs’ at Unit 24
The piece consists of a number of one-take videos recorded on Parkland Walk, a disused railway line in North London.
The near-static, almost monochrome scenes, show dogs and their owners stepping in and out of the frame as do conversations and ambient sound.
Whatever the weather, manâ€™s best friend needs to be taken for a walk. Bakker says, “For me, ‘Snow’ is about the special bond between man and dog.”
‘Snow’ is part of a larger body of work in which Parkland Walk has been documented both in photographs and on film.
‘Snow’ is included in the group exhibition ‘Cats and Dogs’
