Jackie & Judy (video)

Jackie & Judy (video) revisits Rosane and Andrea’s first piece together, Jackie & Judy (dance). The piece, made in 1993, launched the beginning of chameckilerner’s collaboration. While discussing the Fututistic assignment for Performa 09, Phil Harder brought back to Rosane and Andrea the idea of reshooting Jackie & Judy.

It’s fearless and violent dynamic seem very pertinent to the assignment. Phil Harder directed this video, which is his ode to Norman McLaren’s visionary film entitled PAS DE DEUX.

The technique used by Phil Harder in Jackie & Judy impel us towards the works of the futurist paintings. Giacomo Balla’s 1913 painting Swifts, Paths of Movement and Dynamic have a extraordinary resemblance to Jackie &Judy (the video).
