Sons of Bitches

För några månader sedan besökte en före detta elev Westerdals och pratade om vad han jobbade med.
Bland annat visade han en video som han kallade för "art by luck" med titeln Sons of Bitches.
Filmen har gått att se på höstutställningen i Oslo.





Text ifrån Hans Gerhard Meiers hemsida:

 

Art by luck, might be a good

description of this work. The video material is from a dance performance with boys aged 6-9, I was present as a proud father. Under this act I was filming and focusing through a camera lens, I was suddenly aware of the song lyrics. No one around me noticed this. Everyone's focus was on the children and the visual experience.

 

How much around us, are we involuntary exposed to as an audience? What are the cultural references we have as Norwegians and what does a subconscious experience served in English packaging do to us. How does this affect children, is it harmless because it is a different language? Those responsible for the dance show is, of course, had not noticed the text, I suggested that they should replace it for next time ...

Sound and footage has NOT been edited, originally filmed in DV format, text added in AAE.
