Three Men Hula, 1999
video, 1:36 min
Three young men trying to act as one, a corporation, a corps made of three, trapped in motion. In a centripetal pull, they dance inside a closed world, centralized but shifting, a center with dynamic gravities, a playful, sensual, quasi-achievable task.
I made a large three-meter-diameter hula hoop and shot the video with three actors, who have known each other since childhood.
This video was filmed and premiered in the
Chisenhale Gallery, London, 1999.
