Performance and Appreciation - Featuring Portia Victoria/Valis Volkova

A surrealistic exploration of the desire to be desired, the need to observe, to be acknowledged, to arouse and occasionally dismay, “Performance & Appreciation” confronts the relationship between audience and performer, skewering our expectations of the erotic imagination along the way. The film received it’s premiere in Paris’ Nue gallery, as part of a group showing of Blackie’s work along with that of Michelle Bréa, Martial Lenoir and Borys Makary.

Featuring Portia Victoria, who also provided vocal and piano arrangements for the soundtrack by These Papercuts.
