ELSA merdelamerdelamer + VIS A VIS (2013) b&w, 30 min

Genre: Experimental

ELSA merdelamerdelamer Digital. B&W. 4 min. 2013. A smokey, punky and sexy chapter in the collectively made Feminist bio-drama, MamaDada about the Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loring-hove, avant-garde performance artist, sculptress and poet. This brief excursion is inspired by an event that was lost in development where Man Ray and Duchamp made a film of the Baroness shaving her public hair.

VIS A VIS Digital. B&W. 25 min. 2013. Inspired by Vertov's Lullaby from the 1930s, as well as by Warhol's Screen Test portraits and Frampton's Manual of Arms from the 1960s, vis a vis constructs black and white portraits into a set of Romances, a notebook of sexualities: s/m, lesbian, gay, straight, solo. The piece celebrates friends and divergent (d)alliances. Out of the past comes a vision of the future as a set of erotic possibilities.
