Beached

1970, 2:30 min, b&w, sound

"The soundtrack begins with the artist stating the conditions: 'An artist may construct a work and/or a work may be fabricated and/or a work need not be built. I elected five possibilities for videotape.' One sees the artist come over the horizon at a rocky beach and throw a piece of wood. The five possibilites are actions that execute BEACHED. They are shot in five sequences that are seperated by dissolves, and consist of throwing, pulling, lifting, dragging and using leverage. The artist leaves the camera frame in the end." —Alice Weiner

Produced by Fernsehgalerie Gerry Schum, Hannover. Videophotography: Gerry Schum. Performer: Lawence Weiner. First Presentation: Galerie Konrad Fischer, Kunstmarkt, Koln, October 13-18, 1970.
