Wu Tsang, For How we Perceived a Life (Take 3), 2012
16 mm on DVD, English, 9:34 min.
--
For how we perceived a life (Take 3) appropriates interviews from Paris is Burning as a jumping-off point for further inquiry into issues of identity, agency, representation, and exploitation. Paris is Burning is Jennie Livingston’s influential 1990 documentary about New York City’s underground ball culture, which introduced ideas of voguing, serving, and “realness” to mainstream audiences. Tsang’s project re-embodies the interviews of ball artists featured in Paris is Burning, framing self-representation and context as a performance in and of itself, one  that is subsequently edited by filmmakers who, like Tsang, have their own agendas. By appropriating and re-making the “reality” of Livingston’s documentary in deadpan quotes, Tsang calls into question his own agency as a filmmaker struggling to represent voices that are similar to, but not his own.

“Little Daddy Cardboard! Little Daddy Cardboard! That’s me! Actually, you’re not allowed to stand on tables if you’re a human being, or a dog, or a table, or in the ceiling. Well, only if you’re a fly!” (from Subtitles)
Subtitles consists of Kreuger’s own subtitles to an episode of the children’s television series Det Bara Händer (an untranslatable pun combining two meanings: “just happening” and “bare hands”) by Staffan Westerberg, produced for Swedish Television in 1972. “I have collapsed a whole archive of the Self into this one episode, which I found a few years ago when I spent several months studying audiovisuals from the 1970s. I remembered it, frame by frame, from when I was seven. I also remember being offended by the over-aestheticized pedagogy. But that might as well be someone else’s memory.” (Anders Kreuger)
