Corrections @ Vito Acconci. 1970

Publié le par Olivier Lussac

1970, 12 min, b&w, sound, Super 8 film
Unavailable until now, Corrections is Acconci's first single-channel video. Back to the camera, with only his head and bare shoulders visible, Acconci lights a match and brings it around to the nape of his neck. The lights dim as the flame nears his body hair, which briefly flares in the darkness, at which point Acconci shakes out the match. This action is repeated for the duration of the piece. Corrections introduces themes that typify Acconci's body-based performance work of the 1970's.
