Artwork description
Presented as a video loop, Euan MacDonald’s Snail documents the slow excursion of a snail across barren soil. By attracting our attention to the creature’s minimal, seemingly insignificant movements, MacDonald invites viewers to contemplate the essence and complexity of life, and to consider the mysteries that lie in the most profound depths of the banal.
