Desire

2002, 1:00, silent, black/white

rent or purchase video

Found footage and digital video technology is used to edit a perplexed face (Liv Ullman) caught between two archetypal images (Adam and Eve?) into one fast, frenzied, morphed image, that could be a Rorschack ink blot or an O’keefe vagina flower.

These 1 second film clips are taken from the Swedish film Curious Yellow, 1967, a highy ploitical and provocative moc documentary, where the boundaries for what could be shown publically are pushed. Sexuality and [socialist] politics are comrades in arms.
