Instalation of the work Clean, by João Leonardo, 2003

DV-video Pal, 4:3, color, no sound, 26:20 min

This work is an appropriation of Bruce Nauman's seminal video, Art Make Up, 1968 - where the artist is seen putting four layers of 
body paint on his face and torso: white, red, green and black. The action is presented in reverse so the sense and meaning of the 
original piece is re-contextualized and re-interpreted as a new version - which is underlined by the word-play of the new title.
