Mutterwitz

1992, Video, 8:43 (Colour, Stereo)

by Sharon Alward

Mutterwitz is a symbolic drama, exploring Kant’s notion of judgment and the representation of a relationship between thinking and judging. The layering of images and the competing presence of spectacle create a theater of questioning and debate. Video images are combined with documentation of a performance of the artist, who pulled herself around a 633 foot track containing 20 gallons of milk for 6 days. Mutterwitz longs for the redemptive, reconciliatory power of art in a world of suffering and violence.
