In "Body of Work", producer Kim Downing, with crew members Kathleen Connolly and Ann Marsden, collaborated with artist Dorit Cypis, to produce an in-depth video portrait which incorporates studio interviews of Cypis, slides and video of her performances and installations. Cypis articulates her views on the female body as nude subject of the gaze in art and culture, as she herself becomes the subject.
"Body of Work" beautifully blends a documentary function with a self awareness of the behavior of the camera..... David Joselit
