Denis Masi
1970
16mm B & W film, silent
Masi’s intention in this work is to explore the idea of loss in general and historical loss in particular; the loss of a traditional mode of inspiration. The use of the female figure over thousands of years has been a support and often essential for the production of what we now consider art. This traditional mode has been marginalized by a shift in some areas of contemporary fine art practice. In this performative work Masi follows a choreographed sequence of movements using entrances, exits and props to picture the cancellation of a tradition.
