CLIMACTIC ACTUALITY

2014

2:31, video

Following a shadow of expectancy, making a mountain out of a mountain, shifting balance is found in suspension.

The title is reflexive of climax in narrative. Instead of presenting a linear character-based storyline, the function of the climax is inversed to focus on a first-person filmic analysis of the actuality of experiencing climax, questioning the processing of meaning through narrative experience. This work exists in the space of metacinema.

Director, Performance, Camera, Editor – Nikki Walkerden
Sound by Shaun Hay

Includes the 2011 performance – Balancing Act on Gornergrat, footage was filmed in Switzerland and China (2011-13).
