Publié le par Olivier Lussac

THREE RELATIONSHIP STUDIES, 1970
1970, 12:30 min, b&w and color, silent, Super 8 film
In this three-part exercise, Acconci explores the dynamics of the artist's interaction with or manipulation of an other. Each study involves a form of mirroring. In Shadow-Play, Acconci spars with his own shadow image, aggressively confronting himself as other. In Imitations, Acconci attempts to mirror another man's gestures and actions. In Manipulations, Acconci -- seen by the viewer in a mirror -- faces a nude woman and directs the movements of her hands over her body through his own hand motions.
