Film Performance, 20+ minutes, 1.37, 2006
Two 35mm reels of film contain a portrait of a film projectionist projecting
and rewinding and projecting and rewinding the same two reels of film.
The screen becomes a mirror, revealing the “man behind the curtain”.
The lights remain up and the audience is encouraged to amble about the
theatrical space, dividing their attention between the live and identically
recorded performance. This performance must run for at least twenty minutes
and may run for as long as the projectionist wishes.
Above is a document of the performance. Below is a document of the performance 10 years later.
