LEZZIEFLICK

by Nana SWICZINSKY
2008 / Video / color / sound / 1S / 7' 00

Deconstruction, a term still fashionable for describing the methods of experimental film and evaluating its result, always promises a lot and often delivers too little. But in the case of Nana Swiczinsky’s LEZZIEFLICK a positive relationship to the postmodern comes to the forefront: as though effortlessly, the film presents the results of a (foreseeable) failure in the search for depictions of women’s erotic relationships among general stocks of images. Women’s clichés from picture agents and porno posters are found, a discovery that at first glance is not very amusing: Dull, pale, pixel-filled images of rigid women’s poses on the telephone, during a massage, having sex. However, by means of a morphing technique, with her usual sovereign handwork Swiczinsky creates a movement in these flat pictures that delves their depths.
