Taking Her For a Spin

Janet Merewether

1997, 05:00 minutes, colour, English


Shot on the road from Sydney to Broken Hill and the places in-between.
The car, the lust, the road, the roadkill. The expanse, the fear, the communion, the return. One journey by road and by foot. Male (car) traverses female (land) and all that's left are bodies (cold).
A mediation on the conquest of machine over landscape, of nature as incomprehensible 'other'.
