Counterpoint B, 2018
Video / Duration: 11:51 minutes / loop
In a stark white setting three men are engaged in a mysterious ritual or game. They move in such a way as to appear suspicious, anxious, involved in an enigmatic exercise of power. What is happening? Something erotic, violent, rivalrous? Dominance and control are implied as they seem to be testing each other’s boundaries or perhaps looking for a way to communicate and relate to one another.
Counterpoint B is working around similar notions as Counterpoint A – here the langage is removed, and the bodies and actions of the performers are released from the implications of the narration. Both works are part of a series dealing with transformation, multiplication, shape - shifting, and re-structuring of ideas, systems and perspectives.
