Anders Nilsen: Sianach


Although no one has ever witnessed the Sianach and lived long enough to report it somehow we know that it has the form of a gigantic carnivorous deer. Anders made this deceptively light picture of a mortifying scene, leaving the viewer vibrating between the two poles of innocence and arbitrary cruelty.

Of course, since the perspective is that of an onlooker you can be sure that you, the viewer, are doomed. No one escapes to tell of the Sianach.
