A woman is transformed into a fox, a naked woman with six breasts and a wolf-like person perform pirouettes, jump right across the screen to the rhythm of the music. Deborah Kelly's animation film Beastliness is built on a series of analogue paper collages. The artist has been working on this project for three years, and in it she again explores the poetry and metaphors of reproductive technologies, as well as expressing in dance form the intermixture and the idealisation of femininity.
