After René Viénet
Self Publication: Artist Book
Created for installment in the Maine College of Art 2016 BFA Show, in response to Situationist artist René Viénet's 1973 film, La Dialectique peut-elle casser des briques? [Can Dialectics Break Bricks?]. Viénet's film is a détourned Hong Kong martial-arts film overdubbed in French and covering a range of philosophical topics and Marxist theory. My intention with this book was to reroute Viénet's work of détournement through the use and re-use of this specific scene in this specific form. The book is 10 pages long and every page depicts the same image.
