Ugly Yelp, 2000,

Ugly Yelp, by the Swiss photographer and video-artist Olaf Breuning, is a video that mixes the aesthetic of the horror film made popular by films like The Blair Witch Project with characters that seem to have been taken from some freaked-out Scandinavian black metal band. The parodic nature of this mixture does nothing to lessen the threatening potential of the video, which presents scenes of self- destructive behaviour and wanton violence taken as entertainment by some adolescents.
Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
