Waterways: 4 Saliva Studies

1971, 22:27 min, b&w, sound

Waterways comprises four minimalist exercises in which Acconci explores the formal, visual and dynamic properties of a body fluid in a controlled performance situation. Using extreme close-ups and amplified sound to force the viewer into the space of his body, he experiments with his mouth as a container for saliva, holding it in as long as possible, trying to catch it in his hands. By using a bodily fluid as art-making material, Acconci pushes the anti-aesthetic of body art to its radical extreme.
