Martha Wilson "Story lines"

de Appel, Brouwersgracht 196, Amsterdam
'In Story lines, Martha Wilson tells how she almost seduced a young man who came to install a heater. She climes a ladder, ostensibly to help her decide exactly where to place the heater. On the basis of this image, she spins her story from a succession of angles and claims that all previous accounts are distorted versions of the truth. (...) We then see a series of slides of twisted closeups of Wilson’s face. We also see her mother, and finally a shot of Wilson, looking happy, posing in front of a pigsty. In the course of the story, we see Wilson seated in a rocking-chair crossing the room. She sings mutilated songs (‘My love is like a red, red rocking-chair...’), topples over blocks of sawn wood behind the projection screen and imitates her own voice which plays on a tape recorder. All these activities can be explained in symbolic terms. for example, they stand for the distortion of truth and reality.’ ('Review', Artforum, February 1978, p. 70.)
