Pugilist Series 449


Pugilist Series 449 is a single channel video installation in which a boxer delivers a flurry of several hundred blows to the artist’s body and head over five rounds. Wearing a head mounted camera and binaural microphones in his ears the artist documents the assault from the aggressor from a first person perspective.
