Object Collection’s latest project is based upon legendary French film director Éric Rohmer’s “Comédies et Proverbes” — a cycle of six films from the 1980s about romantic love and navigating desire, independence, loneliness, and expectation. Re-igniting Object Collection’s signature maximalist aesthetic– bodies, projections, spoken language, written text, furniture, and sound collide into a kaleidoscopic surge of 21st century disembodied romance. Let’s talk about love, again, again, again, and again.
Following two filmed episodes that streamed in early 2021, Look Out Sh!^head Episode 3 will feature a cast of live actors maneuvering among unstable facades and hallucinatory projected bodies: 2D intimacy in a 3D milieu. The dizzying script derives from applying music-composition techniques to the original film scripts to create dialogue of bizarre innuendo and mysterious word formulae.
Made with the permission of the estate of Éric Rohmer, Look Out Shithead Episode 3 is simultaneously homage and extended fever-dream psychotrip.
