Art Film: The Hairy Notion Of A Green Afternoon

by Susanne Deeken on 4 August 2021

After witnessing the 'overwhelmingly female power' of nature during her lockdown walks in London, artist, designer and filmmaker Susanne Deeken felt compelled to make an art film evoking the strength and beauty of the natural world. Combining gothic elements with cutting-edge transmorphic digital effects, The Hairy Notion Of A Green Afternoon sees people shapeshifting into animals while giant pearls, a cartoon moon, a real-life horse carousel and digital roses drift on by. Imaginative and haunting in equal measure, Deeken's award-winning film turns notions of escapism, conventional beauty and the grotesque on their head.
