    Performance & Woman in a Shanghai Hotel: Tatiana Pentes

    A Russian woman living in Shanghia is expelled from China after the Communist Revolution in 1948. Her story begins in a hotel room in Shanghai and ends on a suburban street in Sydney, Australia. Performative, fictional, and documentary elements are blended into a work that is suggestive and open to multiple readings. Extensive use of film leader and scratchy film surfaces add to the sense that what we are seeing resembles something that is illusive, dream-like, just beyond grasp...or is it just a newsreel playing in someone's head?

  5. Daniel Mudie Cunningham
    Jodie Foster Sex Montage (Play Me Now), 2008.

    Digital slide show for performance backdrop at Blacktown Arts Centre.
    Music: ‘La vie c’est chouette’ by Jodie Foster, 1977.

    This video was screen as a backdrop for Daniel Mudie Cunningham's performance 'Jodie Foster Sex Montage'.

    The video backdrop isolates still frames from a series of Foster’s onscreen sex scenes. 'Jodie Foster Sex Montage (Play Me Now!)' (2008) offers a forensic study of Foster’s gestures and expressions, juxtaposing and editing the still frames to a 15-year old Foster singing ‘La vie c’est chouette’ (Life is sweet) (1977) – an ode to carefree love and teenage crushes that alternates between English and French lyrics. Foster’s voice and body have always proved somehow awkwardly masculine for critics, and Cunningham’s video amplifies this tense relationship between her sometimes tomboy demeanour, her Lolita-esque sexualisation and our awareness of and assumptions about her real-life sexuality. To what extent Foster is the product of this cinematic styling or the projected expectations of viewers is left open-ended.
