(2016) dir K8 Hardy [82 min; Digital]
K8 Hardy’s structuralist and experimental film OUTFITUMENTARY is both performance and video record of the artist’s changing sense of self and style over an eleven-year period. In 2001, before the ubiquity of Instagram and selfies, K8 Hardy set out to document her daily outfits on a fairly consistent, if not daily basis. Hardy used the same mini-DV Camera and filmed in ever-changing living spaces and art studios in New York. The resulting 80-minute film is an affecting and personal exploration of queer identity and the way in which the materiality of the body and its subsequent “outfitting” – in private and public life – serves to refine, define, and probe the body politic.
