Burden 18

Mon 26 – Tue 27 Jun


Synopsis

★★★★ - The Guardian

Grainy super-8 16mm footage of a man stood calmly against a blank wall. Another man points a .22 rifle at him and shoots him through the upper arm.

This is SHOOT, the work of artist Chris Burden who passed away in 2015 and is the subject of this fascinating new documentary.

Renowned for pushing the limits of performance and visual art, Chris was willing to put his own body on the line including being “crucified”, locked-up and electrocuted.

Hugely influential on generations of artists, the doc includes Burden’s own personal archive of images, video and audio recordings.

Dir: Richard Dewey, Timothy Marrinan

UK / USA 2016, 88mins
