- McCARTHY Paul, Sailor’s Meat, 1975. Los Angeles. Videotape with sound, 30 mins., color.
« A male figure in black panties and a platinum wig approaches a moth-eaten mattress on a brass bed frame. There is a period of testing the bed, jumping and pushing.

At the end we see bare feet standing on glass fragments. is this purification through pain? »
