Director: Derek Jarman
Cast: Derek Jarman, Tilda Swinton, John Quentin, Nigel Terry
UK, 1993, 79',  color
English with Turkish subtitles

In his final—and most daring—cinematic statement, Jarman the romantic meets Jarman the iconoclast in a lush soundscape pulsing against a purely blue screen. It’s an amazing aural cut up of voices, Jarman’s amongst them, supplemented and punctuated by sound collage and glorious music, a combination of monologue and prose poem, woven together to a lyrical, almost song-like effect. Laying bare his physical and spiritual state in a narration about his life, his struggle with AIDS and his encroaching blindness, Blue is by turns poignant, amusing, poetic and philosphical.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
