PROJECT OF UNDER
Production year: 2006
Format: Video (Dur. 12 min.)
Participants: Cecilie Rindom
“Project of Under” is a video portrait of Cecilie Rindom, that depicts her attempt to articulate a “passive quality” within herself. The video draws from the documentary and fictional genres in capturing Cecilie’s effort to approach the Other, represented by the squirrels she encounters in local parks.
Her method engenders an intimacy found in devotional expression, whereby she makes the animal into an internal phenomenon; the passivity of her position makes her project-journey one that that goes equally inwards into the dark, just as it does outwards into the park. It asks whether the traditionally perceived quality of feminine receptivity can be a progenitor of motion and action.
