PUNTO [2013]

Single-channel digital video projection | 00:01:26 | Black & White | Silent | 4:3 | installation dimensions: variable




PUNTO appropriates a scene from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film Accattone (1961) where the sub-proletarian protagonist stares into the camera lens and then unexpectedly spits in the direction of the viewer. This transgressive act is slowed down into single-frames that are slowly dissolved into each other offering a visceral and haptic experience of the photographic image.

Part of the 'Pasolini Project' (1990-2022) - a project inspired by Italian filmmaker and poet Pier Paolo Pasolini. The series of works negotiate the complexities of the personal and the political by examining and mining Pasolini’s works and cultural artifacts in a quasi-archaeological and documentary-driven manner using tropes of the archival, the photographic and the indexical.

INSTALLATION VIEW: SCA Galleries (Sydney, Australia)
