The Serpent and the Mouse

The Serpent & The Mouse addresses the understanding of the serpent as inescapably associated to the biblical story of The Fall, and problematizes the associations of this metaphor. The demonization of the female position in this narrative, namely Eve, is shown to be absurd both through its constructed malleability and the bizarre notion of sole responsibility for eternal implications. The Serpent & The Mouse also shows a mouse being eaten by a snake.
The same footage repeats eight times in various manifestations, playfully using text to complicate the understandings of the imagery and to re-position the serpent with more ‘obvious connotations’.
