Tableaux Vivants

Eeva-Mari Haikala

'Tableaux Vivants' is a video performance series, recorded with a Super 8 cine camera. Very little takes place in these small performances: a woman walks into shot, poses herself then stays still, concentrating on just breathing and being. The twelve parts are titled ‘Fruits’, ‘Apples’, ‘Balcony’, ‘Chewing Gum’, ‘Geranium’, ‘Cigarette’, ‘Artichoke’, ‘Crab’, ‘Table’, ‘Anne’s TV’, ‘Crown’ and ‘Red Skirt’ and can be shown together or separately.
