BUCKY, 2013


Three-channel video installation

Three TVs occupy the artist’s studio, playing videos of three separate but coordinated actions. The TVs are positioned where the original actions were performed. In all of the performances, the artist lip syncs to an audio recording by Buckminster Fuller, in which the elderly architect recalls the struggles of his early career. While trying (and eventually failing) to maintain lip sync, the artist simultaneously performs a physical exercise to the point of failure. The three videos are synchronized, forming a single soundtrack as the artist (in her three video incarnations) struggles to keep up.
