Reception Room

1973-2004, 8:26 min, color, sound

This newly edited historical video work documents Acconci's 1973 performance Reception Room, which was presented at the Modern Art Agency in Naples, Italy. Acconci lies naked on a gurney-like table, rocking back and forth as a tape-loop of his voice describes his anxieties about exposing his body and his artwork. Writes the artist: "My voice functions as a scenario that keeps me confined to the bed: once I've exposed my fears and shames publicly, then I might be able to face them in private."
