Everything is Urgent confronts us with human figures whose voices are replaced by ferocious barks of dogs. Each figure is given a growling “voice” of its own, perfectly synchronized to the extent that it becomes its own, enabling a bark at the camera and at an invisible viewer-addressee. The work presents a spectrum between the violence of a raw animal growl and the human via action that cross-breeds man and dog. This violent desperate cry and hybrid audiovisual collage surrenders no explanation; it merely poses a hybrid creature open to interpretation.
