You Turn to the Right, explores language and its inadequacies and barriers when confronted with conflicts of aggression and intimacy, both human and animal, and the thresholds between. Taking as its sub-structure, Jacques Lacans notion of Hailing one into language and subjecthood, and the work of pioneering biologist Konrad Lorenz “On Aggression,” the piece abstractly probes into the loss of the aggressive drive (a drive that once was fulfilled by the need to provide ones own sustenance) and the resulting displaced aggression into the domestic realm.
