Make Dream

1993, 3:13 min, color, sound

In the oddly haunting MakeDream, Donegan stands in front of an empty canvas, wearing a paint-filled squeeze bottle on a string around her waist. Without using her hands, she catches the bottle between her thighs and squeezes it to create a Pollock-like splatter painting. With her ironic athletic gestures, Donegan rewrites the phallic mythology of male creativity via Action Painting.
