ENDURING ORNAMENT

by Josh LEWIS & MM SERRA
2014-2016 / 16mm / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 14' 12

Sourced from five 16mm filmstrips found outside of a closing adult bookstore on New York's former 42nd Street sex district. Making use of a salvaged contact printer and chemical alterations applied directly to the subsequent prints, these storied images transform into a primordial celebration of bodily spectacle. Threaded throughout the film is the exuberant compound word poetry of Baroness Elsa von Freytag Loringhoven, giving voice to an immediate and transgressive consciousness.
Score by Albert Behar
