CODA I + CODA II

Peter Gidal

A foremost exponent of British Structural/Materialist cinema, Gidal contributes CODA I and CODA II to Frieze Film. The starting point for these 16mm films is a soundtrack that consists of three lines from a 1,000-word story he wrote in 1971, read by William Burroughs. Gidal describes the films’ so-called imagery as “a complex of barely visible cuts in space and time, the opposite of erasure, but nothing so much as visible.”
