Aona (2011)

25 min 56 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

"A 26 minute high definition film that documents the grooming of the prize-winning Japanese poodle, Aona. The film’s single take, set frame and silent audio allow the viewer to become transfixed in the moment of Aona's obedience and stillness. The consummate professional, Aona non-responsively allows the groomer to transform her into a glamorous heiress."
