PASSAGE 
13 mins, 16mm film, 2020.


A foley artist creates sounds for a film starring a dressage horse and dissolves into his own imitation.
 
As the character in the film, played by the gender fluid performer Simon(e) Jaikiriuma Paetau, seems to transform into a gender-defying centaur, the film reflects on the boundaries between the human and the animal as well as on fictional gender roles and their transcendence.
 
Shot on 16mm film, PASSAGE alludes to Eadweard Muybridge’s pre-cinematic experiments with horses.
