rest (in memory of Thelma Cullingham) \ I imagined her into being then put her away in neat packets. 2003

Performance document – passive camera, single take HD video loop 96:00

The artwork documents a performance in which I perform folds on the rest collection of 29 cocktail garments vintage 1965-1975. The static camera is trained in a semi-close up position focussed on the disembodied work of the hands upon the garments. The sound track amplifies the subtle noise of dialogue with Thelma’s absent body. Joel Silver (sound designer) Eyes Post (editor)
