Video tape, 15’, DV, Geneva, 2005
This cycle of video works called Performing revisits several video-performance works (*1 – *6) from the seventies. The protocols of these pieces are reenacted in a child’s room, by two sisters, aged 10 and 6.
Appropriation, by young girls, of these significant performances underlines the childish source of the actions. Childhood games sometimes seem to serve as raw material to stage adult deviancies.
The video Performing therefore goes “back to the source”.
