WHO SHOT CHRIS BURDEN?

2021 / 16mm & Video / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 10' 27

"SHOOT" is one of the most famous filmed performances in the history of art: it shows the young American artist Chris Burden being shot with a rifle. He is 25 years old. The scene is shot in Los Angeles. If "SHOOT" illustrates the artist's sacrifice to create his work, the performance is also part of a cultural fascination with violence - and with filmed violence. But the person who made ("shot") the film, and who took care of the artist, remains unknown: it is Barbara T. Smith, at the time Barbara Burden. She lives in Pasadena and remembers in 2018 the circumstances of the action.
