12 Shooters // Marcia Farquhar
12 Shooters incorporates 13 short-films by 13 different filmmakers, each a reconfiguration of a once-live work from the last 12 years of Marcia Farquhar’s practice. In each case, Farquhar and the respective ‘shooter’ chose which work was to be revisited and in what manner. Farquhar then dedicated her performance to their camera on an appointed day, thereafter handing all editorial control to the filmmaker.
“Most dazzling of all, 12 Shooters succeeds in being a critically engaging archive that is on-side with the stray thoughts and unexpected philosophical conundrums of everyday lived experience that have always been Farquhar’s subject”. – Deborah Levy
