Summer, 1993
1994, 7 min, color, stereo sound

Video Image for Summer, 1993

“Shamelessly sentimental and lush, this music video recalls a young man’s summer now over: beautiful boys, his father’s car, the beach and the water.” “'Summer, 1993' lyrically reveals the blossoming of new love”. “a birthday gift, a love affair.” These were among the promotions for Summer, 1993 when it was first shown, primarily in gay and lesbian film and video festivals. Opening with an excerpt from Rainer Maria Rilke’s “The Second Elegy” and set to Sade’s “Kiss of Life”, the works manifestly romantic content is inseparable from the 8mm film on which it was shot. Again in my art, material precipitates meaning, and the semblant quality of the work and the idyl it captures can be felt.
