  Art Lies and Videotapes: Exposing Performance
  Show at Tate Liverpool curated by Adrian George
November 2003 - February 2004
   
  The show was organized in six sections analyzing 100 years of performance practice. My photo and film work was represented in two sections: Image as Icon and Me and My Camera.
   
   
   
 

Image as Icon

Two walls are facing each other.


On one side there are three plasma screens of the three camera positions recorded on 16mm color film of the Trisha Brown performance Roof Piece recorded on July 3, 1973, the only day when the piece was performed on several rooftops in Soho from Prince Street to Walker Street in New York City.
On the wall facing the three screens, the well-known photograph that came to represent the piece was next to the contact sheet shot the same day. The two photographic prints side by side gave a sense of the context for the performance and showed the audience scattered on roof tops that were there that day.

The installation contrasting photo and film of ther same event made possible for the viewer to reflect on the immediacy of the single photograph and the complexity of the thirty minutes performance.

The spectator of the installation suddenly discovers how the movement of the dancers was transmitted from one dancer to the next over the distance separating all those roofs and how the movement passing from one dancer's body to the next was transformed by the misinterpretation due to the delay and the distance separating those multiple roofs.

Me and My Camera

The section compares various photographer practices in relation with subjects matter and type of work. My work was installed at the right of the Peter Moore selection.


It consisted of various photographs and a screen where Site, performance by Robert Morris was shown. Site is the first part of the film Four Pieces by Morris.
