Copycat Triptych, 2020, HD 3-channel film, each individual film on 1 hour loop.
(This clip shows a 5 minute clip of the 3 channel video. Each separate video is on its own loop of around an hour, where I continue to perform the same short movement over and over.)
Copycat Triptych draws on three fragments from old films which all reference the double. Through painstaking repetition I shadow each of the characters movements for an hour. The tracing of the actors’ gestures by my own body becomes strangely uncanny and as my body tires we slip in and out of each-others movements.
