“Klipperty Klöpp is perhaps Kötting’s most testing essay in mock primitivism, a monotonous recital on dilapidated-looking stock, giving the impression of unimaginably old disreputable found footage” - J Romney

About

“Shot by Leila McMillan, with 8 rolls of Super 8 mfa, the film is perhaps my first. A post punk piece of pagan sensibility, complete with bestiality, buggery and boundless energy, the film combines frenetic performance in a field with a monotonous one take recital and tune full songs. Perhaps inspired by Beckett and as a reaction to some of the preciousness of the Land Art tradition as exemplified by Richard Long and Hamish Fulton. Joseph Beuys meets Carry On in a Running-jumping-standing-still film. An artefact, dug up and re-presented in the great-out-of-doors” Andrew Kötting
