Marvelous Movie Mondays: Extravagant Acts

EPFC | October 10th, 2019

guest curator: Zachary Epcar

The theme of this month is EXTRAVAGANT ACTS: four moving image works full of excesses of all kinds; vivid visuals; heightened gestures; performances outrageous and unwieldy; the delirious, the deviant, the utterly irrepressible.

To begin, Valie Export’s 1986 piece ‘Ein perfektes Paar oder die Unzucht wechselt ihre Haut (The Perfect Pair, or Indecency Sheds Its Skin)’

“Your eyes are the most beautiful blue ad space. Your cheek could promote Mercedes. Your neck could be a logo for styled technology. Your lips could be dollar bridges to dream islands.”
