four leggd, 2002
still image from continuous loop video
Two sets of legs hang over the back of a white love seat. The leg motions fluctuate between positions of resting and kicking. It is not clear what the purpose of this ambiguous action is. The improvisational movements humorously mimic an un-choreographed chorus-line. The anonymous legs playfully become intertwined. The continuous loop allows the characters to kick tirelessly.
The legs wear gray nylon stockings. It is not known whether the rest of the bodies are clothed. The back of the love seat faces the viewer to conceal the true nature of the activity and the identity of the characters. The cropping obscures the love seats reading and in turn alludes to the foot of a bed.
