Evidentiary Bodies is Barbara HAMMER’s posthumous film. The threechannel video shows Barbara HAMMER’s naked performance. Images like cells, fungus or microorganisms are projected on her elderly body. Fearful and wonderful at the same time, these images seem like a disassembled and dissolved body after death or its process. Also, this documentary film is a montage, or homage, to images of her movies, including Double Strength (1978) and Santus (1990). It is HAMMER’s way to reveal everything, including her body, lesbian sexuality and X-ray images, and not in ways typically targeted to women. [KWON Eunhye]

Director

  • Barbara HAMMER
    Barbara HAMMER is an internationally recognized film artist who has made 80 films/videos making a significant contribution to lesbian and gay cinema. Her experimental films of the 1970’s often dealt with taboo subjects such as menstruation, female orgasm, and lesbian sexuality. In the 80’s, she used optical printing to explore perception and the fragility of 16mm film life itself. Her documentaries tell the stories of marginalized people who have been hidden from history and are often essay films which are multileveled and engaging audiences with the goal of activating them to make social change.
