“Bruce McClure doesn’t make films, he performs them… Twirling knobs,
flipping switches, and adjusting lenses, he coaxes a bank of whirring
projectors into producing images impossible to record.” THE BROOKLYN RAIL.

Projector placements in theatrical space symbolically repudiate the
camera’s claims on the picture plane by upsetting its hegemony of flattened
evidence taken from the outside world. My performances, furthermore,
continue to negotiate for real space and real objects on the projector’s
side of the movie house in the presence of witnesses. Along the Via
Dolorosa, I have erected eight stations commemorating film’s passion and
the spirit of projective revisionism. Each of the passion narratives
collected in PIE PELLICANE JESU DOMINE (2008 – 2011),* illuminates a unique
camera shot, an emulsive grisaille, excised from a documentary treatment of
pelican life. I now petition you to recognize another station in
construction along this secular pilgrimage. Re-awaken metathesis by walking
in its sandals! Although incomplete and untitled, this stopping place is a
meditation on “entrusting each to the other” and is celebrated by a song.

Film, redefined as an object of the projector’s discretion, is transfixed
by projector headlights, the primary lamp and exciter bulb, and left by the
wayside as road kill. Picturesquely martyred in this way gives rise to film
as a liberating force rather than an intransigent and anachronous icon to
be horded. At the station sprocket time converts matter into energy – a
metaphor for consciousness – breaking a reign of filmic re-enactments and
broadcasting energy into the vitality of perceptual activity. – BM
