A.K. Burns: Early Videoworks

 A.K. Burns’ early video works use ritualized performance, finite gestures, dueling and duality to explore power relations and the body. In Electric at the Cosmic Age Lodge (2005) safety-orange spandex clad body-doubles wrestle through outer- and interior space. In Loss in Exchange (2005) two bodies are folded into one through the equilibrium of exchanging a sweatshirt. And in Thumb War (2004) slowed and macro focused footage abstract a game of thumb war, in which opposable maneuvers accompanied by the drawl of the audio appear like figures or large animals engaged in a dance of domination.
