Three Adaptation Studies @ Vito Acconci. 1970

Publié le par Olivier Lussac

THREE ADAPTATION STUDIES, 1970
1970, 8:05 min, b&w, silent, Super 8 film
In these early film exercises, Acconci exhibits an almost childlike vulnerability that is at once comic and oddly effecting. In Blindfold Catching, a blindfolded Acconci reacts, flinching and lunging, as rubber balls are repeatedly thrown at him from off-screen. In Soap & Eyes, he tries to keep his eyes open after dousing his face with soapsuds, resulting in a tragicomic clown face. In Hand and Mouth, he repeatedly forces his fist into his mouth until he gags.
