Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall - Four Hands (still)

Four Hands

Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall
Four Hands, 2003
30 minutes

Four Hands presents an intimate scene between two individuals as they negotiate the tightly cropped space, struggling alternately for independence and proximity. Conceived in celebration of the artists’ own interracial relationship, it is an homage to the complexity and beauty of an increasingly trans-cultural, trans-gendered, trans-racial society, foreshadowed by the Lovings of Virginia.
