PIÈCE TOUCHÉE

by Martin ARNOLD
1989 / b&w / sound / 1S / 15' 00

Based on a single, 18-second shot from a relatively unknown 1950’s hollywood movie, this classic film constructs a new narrative out of the choreographies and emotions that lay hidden in the source material. Using the optical printer as a microscope, Arnold re-animates the individual frames from the original film and amplifies the inadvertent movements and hesitations of the actors. By insisting on these cracks that appear in the hyperscripted world on the screen, Arnold acts out an almost physical excorcism of gender codes.
