Hollis Frampton

Autumnal Equinox (Solariumagelani) (1974) 16mm, color, 27 min

Genre: Experimental

"...filmed in a slaughterhouse in South St. Paul, MN...Frampton utilizes a shooting strategy that flattens and pictorializes a palpable space of action that includes not only cattle (now seen hanging from huge meathooks), but even on occasion, figures. The abattoir is seen in the fleeting movements of Frampton's hand-held camera. The shots generally begin and end with swift panning movements which effectively flatten and abstract the objects of this work environment. And although a brief passage of green leader is used to mark each cut, the smearing effect of the rapid camera movements tends to elide the shots, to make the flattened color planes run together."--Bruce Jenkins
