1971, 05:30 minutes, B&W, silent
The camera opens in a close-up of a pair of lips on which a snail shell has been placed. The performer remains motionless, and reassured by the stillness, the snail gradually emerges from its shell and crawls away.
A simple exposition of video as framing device for body-based and time-based performance, and a concise metaphor for the relationship between intimacy and trust.
