“Heat” # 4 by Ilona Huss Walin, 2013. From a scene in the movie Heat (1996) where five gangsters make up after a robbery. In the video project “Heat” I make my own versions of scenes from an American action movie where I myself have all the roles and everything takes place at home in my kitchen. I’m interested in seeing what happens when in a video work I let a single person shoulder all the characters and the interaction that takes place between them. I create a choreography where in my kitchen I literally walk between the roles and imitate the expressions and movements of the various Hollywood stars. So far, I only “imitate” the action in the action movie and let everything else like camera angles and clips be different. Performance and the video medium alternate in my work.Rent this work for public screenings
What if I Was a Rat?
