In Extremis

Contreras Rojas and Jeremiah Barber

2008, 30:50 minutes, colour

TAPECODE 2101.00

Barber and his partner, Ingrid Rojas Contreras, drag each other’s collapsed bodies across the desert floor of Death Valley. Each carries the other until a point of exhaustion, then drops. The roles reverse and repeat. The discrepancy between their tasks (Barber’s deadweight is much greater) leads to moments of improvisation where the familiarity of the other becomes an odd burden to be accounted for.
