STRIPS

by Félix DUFOUR-LAPERRIÈRE
2009-2010 / 35mm / b&w / sound / 1S / 5' 32

Masculine noun, shortened form of striptease. From "strip", to remove, to take away, and "tease", to entice, to tempt. And then all this in plural.
In STRIPS, a vintage erotic film is cut into stripes and then reassembled. As these filmstrips are displaced and manipulated, a shift from figuration to abstraction is occurring. A playful look at what is shown and hidden in the image, on the appearance of an erotism and on the ideas of presence and absence. In cinemascope.
