Boxing, 1977 (film stills)

I made the film Boxing in 1977, in the room in which I used to live – a makeshift studio, located on the first floor of an apartment block. The room´s floor, which was black, suited my purpose and allowed the super-imposition I had in mind for the boxing match, which was divided into 3-minute rounds, and made to correspond to the length of a standard 8mm double roll. With myself as the only possible actor, I had to do a double exposure of the film, boxing twice in opposite directions. The neighbors tolerated this until the third round, when they started tapping the ceiling with a broom. The match has its peculiarities – the fighters are naked, the winner kicks his fallen opponent, there is no audience, no referee, no ring. The image of one fighter progressively fades, although he is the “stronger” one and will eventually win.

Boksovanje, 1977. (kadrovi iz filma)

Film Boksovanje snimio sam 1977. godine u sobi gde sam nekada živeo – provizornom ateljeu smeštenom na prvom spratu jednog stambenog bloka. Pod te prostorije, koji je bio crne boje, odgovarao je mojim ciljevima i omogućavao je nasnimavanje koje sam planirao, za bokserski meč, koji je bio podeljen na runde u trajanju od po tri minuta, i bio je prilagođen trajanju standardne dvostruke rolne filma od 8 mm. Pošto sam bio jedini mogući glumac, morao sam da pribegnem dvostrukoj ekspoziciji filma, tako da sam boksovao dva puta, na suprotnim stranama prostorije. Komšije su ovo tolerisale do treće runde, kada su počele da udaraju metlom o tavanicu. Ovaj meč je imao neke svoje osobenosti – bokseri su nagi, pobednik nogom udara protivnika koji je na podu, nema publike, nema sudije, nema ringa. Lik jednog borca postepeno nestaje, premda je on “jača” strana, i na kraju će odneti pobedu.
