Une Danse Des Bouffons/A Jester's Dance

The artist's latest film is on view at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (September 5 - December 29; opening reception Wednesday, September 4, 8 - 10 PM) to coincide with the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival (September 5 - 15).

In this Dadaist love story Une Danse Des Bouffons/A Jester's Dance, there are many recurring themes: death and rebirth, multiple identities and doppelgängers, false prophets, love and love lost, the corruption of power and fragility of what is real or true.Using a recreation of Marcel Duchamp's Étant Donnés, a trickster of old mythology awakens Maria Martins (played by Kim Gordon and Hannelore Knuts) from the sculpture. She finds her lover (a captive Marcel Duchamp) forced to recite chess moves to an unknown game. So Maria must enter a deep rabbit hole to save her love.

Commissioned by TIFF, 2013
