Visions of a Disappearence @ Vito Acconci. 1973

Publié le par Olivier Lussac

VISIONS OF A DISAPPEARENCE, 1973, 25 min, b&w, sound. Visions of a Disappearance is a newly restored performance tape that was recorded in Naples, Italy, in 1973. Crouched in a corner, hemmed in by the video camera and a closed-circuit monitor showing him the scene as it is recorded, Acconci attempts to disappear. He tries to erase his image in the eyes of those watching, alternating between urgent appeals to imagined viewers (represented by the video camera) and pleas to his own image in the monitor.
