Denislavant - Song and Dance (and a Good Movie)

Denislavant - Song and Dance (and a Good Movie)

Visibility is overrated, like fame. Song and Dance (and a good movie) is an installation in four parts. First of all, a screening of Andy Warhol's film Paul Swan, followed by three portraits using black light paint so they are only visible when the normal exhibition lights fade and black light illuminates the room. The third part is the performance of David Bowie's Hunky Dory in its entirety. The final section is the live re creation of the last scene from Claire Denis' Beau travail in which Denis Lavant dances in a disco. For this part Wampler made a replica of the set, learned the choreography and, costumed as Denis Lavant, executes the dance.

Vouw_dubb_2 ; Gipsplaat_dubb

Vouw_dubb_2 involves two photographs. A white sheet with a folded corner forms the basis of the work. Installed together against a wall, the suggestion of a triangular spatial form is evoked from the junction of both surfaces. Gipsplaat_dubb is an investigation into motion in minimal sculpture. As one sheet is a mirror image of the other, a contrast is created. The spatial nature of the work comes about through curving and torsion. Movement along both forms evokes movement in the forms from convex to concave and could be described as 'filmic'.
