"Domestication" shows a particular dependence between a man and the animals he owns. The protagonist - a collector of exotic reptiles - lives in a flat cluttered with aquariums. Surrounded by the luxuriant plants he once planted each day he attentively looks after his animals yet strictly controls their behaviour. A small caiman that he brings home will unexpectedly disturb the inner harmony that the man managed to build. In her animation Sylwia GaweĊ‚ captures the essence of human domination offering an interesting remark on the trap of eponymous domestication.
