Pants Make Spam

by Stubbs, Mike

Video 1992

Arnofilni, Bristol, England

In this intimate and lively tape, Mike Stubbs shows us not only performance art as he did in The Sweatlodge, but also the processes behind the creation of it. He interviews the performance troupe Pants, tapes rehearsals and almost becomes one of them, even going so far as to 'spam' Pants themselves. Stubbs and Pants comment on the making of the performance and the video as they both take shape, the latter with the addition of slow-motion super 8 of the performances which give a heightened sense of the work, quite removed from the down-to-earth atmosphere of rehearsals.
