Cadere and the Weal
A young huntress stalks an imaginary squirrel, her object of desire. The undead squirrel hides in its imaginary cave in tense juxtaposition to the longing and wandering of the huntress. “Cadere”, a nod to Kristeva’s text on abjection, is “to f all” and the root of “cadaver”; the “weal” is the wound left behind by these failed encounters with the Wild. As the huntress draws her bow and marks her target, the animal is transformed into its real-dead iteration, exposed to time and immanent decay.
