Synop­sis:

   By using the cine­ma screen as a “ready-made” and sig­ning my name on the bot­tom right hand cor­ner –like a pain­ter would do when finishing a pain­ting or a graf­fi­ti artist does on a wall– I am not only appro­pria­ting myself of it in order to bring for­ward its cha­rac­te­ris­tics as an object in the film pro­cess, but also of the films pro­jec­ted on that par­ti­cu­lar screen in order to take our unders­tan­ding of colla­ge-appro­pria­tion-com­pi­la­tion tech­ni­ques to an extre­me for further questioning.

NOTE: The follo­wing video shows excer­pts of impor­tant films in the his­tory of expe­ri­men­tal cine­ma only as an exam­ple of a sup­po­sed film pro­gram in order to trans­mit an idea of what the refe­rred ins­ta­lla­tion-appro­pria­tion would be like. The con­tent of such a pro­gram will vary depen­ding on the curator’s choi­ce of works to be scree­ned if he ever deci­des to pre­sent this pie­ce in a spe­ci­fic event.
