ADYNATA

by Leslie THORNTON
1983 / color / sound / 1S / 30' 00

Deploying fragments of sound and image in a confounding shell-game, Adynata challenges notions of Asianness and the East. Thornton, appearing in the guise of a 19th-century Mandarin and his wife, explores oppositions of femininity and masculinity concealed in Orientalist assumptions. Here, lushly beautiful scenarios function as double-edged critical tools, inhabiting the discourse that they critique.
