RESTORING THE APPEARANCE TO ORDER IN 12 MIN.

by Coleen FITZGIBBON
1975 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 10' 00

A static camera tightly frames the studio sink, dirty with paint and other residue while the artist engages in a concerted ritual of scrubbing and scraping … a treatise on the over-cleanliness of certain reductivist gestures in history of art making.
