About

Regimes of dominance and subjugation are explored in Camille Henrot‘s film Tuesday. Shot almost entirely in slow motion, the film interweaves footage of racehorses being groomed before and after training with scenes of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu figures interlocked in combat. Jiu-Jitsu's grappling and ground fighting positions of dominance and submission form a dynamic power structure, a sporting struggle, in which the roles are reversed from one moment to the next. The tenderness of the moment of who comes out on top, is echoed in the sensuality of grooming the horses pre-race. In both instances, the anticipation of what is about to happen, or the tension of the 'almost', freeze and are suspended. The reversibility of the roles is materialized in the sculptures Wait What and I Say depicted in anthropomorphic forms in states of tension and suspension.
