|OTEIZA, THE MAN WHO FLEES|
Filmed testimony recorded by Jorge Oteiza (3min 12sec, 1989)
In front of a camera, Oteiza records a series of corrections to the programme that Paloma Chamorro filmed on him for The Golden Age, explaining his dissatisfaction with the filming of his sculptures. Seen today, the testimony is a gift to understand the sculptor-filmmaker’s idea of how to film a sculptural work and which music should accompany it in the subsequent editing, how the camera should pan in and out in a journey of shapes and how Anton Webern is the musician that is above all the notes. It is a small lesson that will serve us to watch the last of his films in which Oteiza preaches by example, filming his own sculptures in Aranzazu.
