Same Shoes

1994, 14:26 min, color, sound

Employing characteristically minimal trappings and camera work, Baldino explores a concept through the manipulation of simple props and tools. Here two pairs of shoes, two outfits and an ingenious visual "trick" serve to open up questions of gender and performance. As in many of Baldino's tapes, Same Shoes is concerned with the elision or collapse of opposing categories, and the indeterminate space that remains.
