video, 2008, Part of the Impostor series + Living Documents installation
Dudes reflects information gathered in the Identity Profile. The data is transformed into a series of micro-skits as Lendrum’s “impostor”, Jacqueline van de Geer interprets the responses to the question “What are Robert’s pronounced traits in situations with only heterosexual men”. Jacqueline performs a comedic satire of homosocial bonding with the assistance of three dudes.
This project has exhibited as part of the installation entitled Living Documents.
To purchase or rent a copy of Dudes please contact Robert Lendrum or Vtape.
