Rare Performance Documents 1961-1994 Volume 1: Paik-Moorman Collaborations

Charlotte Moorman and Nam June Paik
1965-73, compiled 2000, 25:08 min, b&w and color, sound

Newly restored, rare performance material from Nam June Paik's personal archives, including many collaborations with Charlotte Moorman, are featured in two remarkable volumes. These documents trace the evolution of Paik's eclectic and at times eccentric performance work over three decades, from a haunting, silent 1961 film (Hand and Face) to a 1994 tribute to John Cage at the Kitchen in New York.

Volume 1 includes documentation of Paik's emblematic collaborative pieces with Charlotte Moorman, including TV Bed, TV Cello, and TV Bra. These works are performed at venues that resonate in video art history, such as the Howard Wise Gallery, the Everson Museum (where David Ross joins Moorman on the TV Bed), and the WGBH television studio.

Producer: Stephen Vitiello. Editor: Seth Price at Electronic Arts Intermix. All footage courtesy of Nam June Paik.
