Jager Eyes and Gristle bases itself on an assemblage of the mass media image material on Princess Diana’s violent car accident (1997) as well as text fragments from a document which describes the public execution of Francois Ravaillac (1610). Unfolding from interests in relations between voyeurism and violence, the piece directs itself towards the role of the witness and how the act of observation, in itself, may initiate specific ‘dramas’ – balancing on a boundary between reconstruction, disgrace and shrine.
