Five Visits to the Doctor

Marlene Madison

1995, 09:00 minutes, colour, English


Five Visits to the Doctor is an eight minute comedy short that will take you on a journey into the tormented mind of a woman who finds herself the unexpected recipient of a spitball.
The question is: where did it land and whom did it come from? Five Visits to the Doctor is the artist's first performance/video production while studying at the Emily Carr Institute of Art. It was recorded for documentation purposes and not intended for public screening and/or distribution.
