Dancer is about the dissonance between a real body and a represented one, and what we desire and expect of both. I was sent a video of a virtual lap dancer, and I had the desire to become the animated body that I saw. Dancer is a nine-minute video of two arms that move independent of a body. The body—the center—has been erased and, with it, the logic driving its movement. In the absence of the motion’s origin, what is seen in the video are the consequences of that motion laying bare the fracture between the real and the represented body, and the absurdity of not only this performance, but of those that inspired it. A body of parts that do not correspond: this is what I wanted to be. To see oneself fractured is perhaps the hardest part, and also the most spectacular.
