Gargle/Spit Piece

1970, 3 min, color, silent, Super 8mm film on video

The artist, sitting naked, takes water from a pot into his mouth and gargles; he spits it out onto his stomach and groin, transferring the water from one "container" (the pot) to another (his body).


This is a video transfer of a work initially shot on film. This is best shown as a projection, to reflect the original medium.
