1977, 6:04 min, b&w, sound

With its sinister and grotesque imagery, Bands is the most powerful and brutal of these early works. Starkly lit and isolated before the camera, Bozanich straps rubber bands across his face, distorting and slicing his flesh until it bleeds. The artist's self-mutilation becomes an emblematic howl of pain and despair.
