Erró – Grimaces
Between 1964 and 1967, Erró asked artists, musicians, poets, gallery owners, critics and curators to make faces for him spontaneously. In 1967 Erró collected the individual ?portraits? over the course of years; some sequences last only a few seconds, other up to two minutes?until the hand holding the camera is consumed by laughter and the picture starts to wobble. Finally in 1967, Denise de Casabianca mounted 173 recordings with expertise and sensitivity, resulting in a 40-minute film. The result is Grimace, an experimental film that is as anarchistic as it is conceptual.
The book presents 133 sequences from the film. It provides a closer look at the individual shots, the presentation and actors.
