Where are the boundaries of your flesh and who determines them? How do we effect our surroundings? What is revealed from our actions? In “Reveal,” Angela Pujolas stretches, separates, and ducks the hot pink extensions of her frame imagining and opening alternative and simultaneous worlds of vivid color.
REVEAL creates an alternate and simultaneous reality as a form of resistance and hope through contrasts—artifacts, color, and the pealing back of one frame to reveal another.
REVEAL uses key-framing and the use of components of Extending the Body‘s live performance including a similar sound-structure, props such as the long elastic cords, and location.
The work begins blurry—coming into focus with the title before blurring again—placing vision, “the act or power of seeing” on the offensive and aims to place what is being seen into question from the very beginning. Each quick cut jumps to another black and white and/or colored world, reveals another part of the grounding shot—the winding road and ELS of Angela, a black and white road, a pink lake.
