BREATHE DEEP

by MM SERRA
2011 / Video / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 5' 00

Breathe Deep is an experimental documentary of artist Katherine Bauer and focuses on her recipe for the crystallization/mummification of road kill and skeletal remains. The film is 3rd in a series by Serra that focuses on underground artists whose work centers on the cathartic transformation of abject bodily performance or material. Katherine's mummification process resurrects and breathes new life into the dead. The crystalized corpses are not simply beautiful or simply putrid, but blur the distinction, lying in a layered chimeric space.
