Thinking on Your Feet
July 6 – September 7, 2008
Seeing Chelsea Girls and Yvonne Rainer’s hand film, I felt that making film was open to me. Up to that point, I’d felt a deference for film, and maybe I was a little bit frightened of it; I wouldn’t have picked up a camera. That must have been in ’67, and then I started to shoot film in ’68.
The exhibition Richard Serra. Thinking on Your Feet is the first to focus solely on the artist’s filmic work. The KW Institute for Contemporary Art will show five early films made in the period between 1968 and 1976; these provide an unusual approach to the oeuvre of this artist, who was born in San Francisco in 1939.
I probably had to shoot these films so as to make the difference to sculpture clearer to me.
