12poot 2012
HDV, color, sound, 12 min.
As indicated by its name, 12poot — both a film title and the name of the character playing the title role —
refers to a table-like sculpture with twelve slender legs. This twelve-minute film, which was shot in 2012,
depicts the demise of the wooden sculpture that is clad in white paper. Before appearing in 12poot,
the object languished in artist Alice De Mont’s studio for a year as its concept and meaning continued to elude her.
In addition to De Mont’s ongoing questioning of the sculpture’s role and purpose, studio visitors increasingly
chimed in with criticisms of how the object looked. In response, De Mont created a monologue incorporating
both the criticisms of the object and the comments about its unfulfilled expectations.
12poot is accompanied by a male narrator who directly addresses the sculpture as ‘you’,
all the while holding the object responsible for its particular failings and aesthetic flaws.
The sculpture, which was destroyed directly after the film’s creation, now has a purely filmic existence.
