Based on a true story of an infamous road kill-eating hermit from the Florida Keys, Jane Hsu’s video, And There Were Two: Diary of a Road Kill Eater, is the tale of an epicurean journey of Dr. Voon Bon Hoe and his apprentice, John. The video is composed of shots from the abandoned trailer parks of north Florida and Yosemite national park accompanied by a haunting full written score for six electric guitars. Scenes from the video are taken from the vantage point of the road kill eaters. The viewer accompanies the characters on their journey to find road kill for their meals, visiting national parks, speed traps, and cul de sacs. Jane Hsu’s video work explores the curious and the astonishing of a parallel world created with tall tales, epicurean exploits, and overheard conversations. The narrative is completed with a series of 12 prose block poems illustrated with graphite drawings.
