8 Bodies for 588 Frames (2021)


Tales Frey, 8 Bodies for 588 Frames, 2021. Video, 1’51”. Edition: 15 + 2 P.A.


This work is based on a proposition aimed to 8 performers who, from their homes in different locations, captured images of their own bodies and performed various movements under clothes and accessories of the same black color. From each of the 8 videos, a huge set of frames was exported and printed and then digitized in the form of stop motion, where we see a hand manipulating all the leaves, with the ultimate performative character of the work in the mediation gesture.



Proposition by Tales Frey | Performers (creation of bodies compositions): Ana André, Ana Efe, Baltazar Vicente Xavier, Cláudio Marconcine, Marianna London, Nara Rosetto, Henrique Montagne, Edna Luz, Thais Araújo, Washington Pastore and Rosa Bunchaft | Porto/Portugal, 2021
