13. Icarus (video)



Video 6:16
Rio de Janeiro, June 2012

Differences in performance and playing. 

Icarus is a video performance which superimposes two video reels taken at Ipanema Beach—one executed by the artist in a manner informed by the recent history of art and performance, and the other by a child done playfully and instinctually—each individually exploring the relationship between body, object, and landscape.

The final work extracts different moments and highlights the visual echoes between gestures and actions from both, establishing a graphic, geometric interplay.
