Artist and film-maker Andrew Kötting revisits his graduation film “Klipperty Klöpp”. A post punk piece of pagan sensibility in which a man repeatedly and energetically runs round and round in circles on common ground in Gloucestershire, carrying palaeolithic paintings of horses. Part Benny Hill part Joseph Beuys, the work is as much a performance piece as it is a exercise in Samuel Beckett parody. In the re-make Kötting's protagonist is a woman moving very slowly within the almost identical landscape to exactly the same soundtrack. Married up edit for edit with the original super 8 footage, Kötting sees the work as a digital artefact dug up and re-presented as a split screen 33 years after the event.
