ONE NIGHT ONLY – WITH LIVE PERFORMANCE
SATURDAY, MARCH 12 – 7:30 and 10:00PM
“I’m a female Charlie Chaplin, I could have made slapstick comedy. I’m thinking more and more about acting again, in my films. My body in a movie is very important, it says something by itself, it has the weight of the Real. I can’t have actresses playing my clumsiness.” – Chantal Akerman
F is for Frame features a series of short video works by artists who use the camera to reframe, unframe, and construct feminists performances and identities. The artists use their bodies in a number of ways, ranging from minimal cameos and the use of childhood home video footage to staged performances created for the camera. Dialoguing with the history of feminist artists who positioned their bodies as sites for production and political intervention, the range of selected videos create a constellation of contemporary feminist strategies produced by and for the camera.
