Passages II (1974)
Video, magnetic tape, 11'12", B&W, sound, 1/2 inch open reel.

Filmed by Jom Tob Azulay in Rio de Janeiro. Anna Bella Geiger moves along flights of stairs. In an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist (2018), the artist states, “In Passages II, I use the shape of the cathode ray tube, which was square with rounded corners (also in Passages I), as the four corners. To me, those steps represented a page of a notebook. My own image, I asked them to shoot it as much as possible from the side, so that my body would look as two-dimensional as possible.”
