Mythology in the video works by Ema Kugler is inscribed in rituals of everyday life; this time it is the theme of Hydra with many facets. The theme is represented by the separate scenes featuring human figures in leather costumes (created by the artist herself) that constrain their movements, thus emphasising their separation from nature.
The last trace of their respective connection is shown in a ritual relationship between a man and a bull, although even this relationship involves man's deeply ingrained cruelty towards animals. But even this connection ends with the blood that symbolically floods the video image.
