In the grand bedroom of a vast family residence, a wealthy American man is seated on the edge of an empty bed. The man, dressed in mourning suit, recounts a fable, as if towards an invisible occupant of the bed. The fable, told by the man, recounts the story of a stag who is repeatedly tricked by a corrupt fox and a despotic lion into taking a seat of power that does not exist. Extensively adapted from an existing Aesop fable, the man's elegiac story is entirely circular and recurs seamlessly and endlessly in the gallery space.
