Solitary Acts #6


Rental Format(s): Digital File

Materials used: Wittnerchrome, Exacto Knife, 1.5mm Letter Punches, Hammer, Leather Puncher

This is a feminist critique of the Oedipal complex. The filmmaker recounts an abortion she had in 2009. The aborted child survives and becomes her lover. Her subject is filmed in a private act, complicating what could be an act of the solitary.

There are three parts in the film. First is a recount of the child's earliest sexual memory, similar to the filmmaker's in Solitary Acts #4. The text is hammered on the film with letter punches. Second is a letter written to the filmmaker from her subject, being read by the filmmaker. The image is punched out with a leather puncher and carefully replaced into black leader with tweezers. A pop song from 2009 is used, the one the filmmaker heard while driving in the taxi from her abortion. Third is a letter that the filmmaker wrote, being read by the subject. In this third part the audio is broken apart and the letter is reversed, mimicking the reverse masturbation(the image).
