Filler @ Vito Acconci. 1971

FILLER, 1971
1971, 29:16 min, b&w, sound
In Filler, Acconci lies on the floor, facing the camera, his head and upper body hidden inside a large cardboard box. At regular intervals throughout the duration of the tape, he coughs repeatedly. The focus of this minimalist work becomes the rasping sounds of the cough, and the near-silences that precede them. Acconci is both absent and present, obscured and visible, communicating through a bodily function.
