?A selection of Clarke's pioneering and influential work with video, from the 1970s and 1980s. With the new medium of video still in its infancy, Clarke immediately recognised and began to explore its progressive possibilities. Based in the penthouse of the infamous Hotel Chelsea, she formed the “TeePee Video Space Troupe” collective of visual artists, and developed a powerful fusion of live performance and video. Highlights include Tongues and Savage/Love, Clarke’s trailblazing collaborations with actor/director Joseph Chaikin and acclaimed playwright/actor Sam Shepard. The core of this programme, Four Journeys into Mystic Time (60 minutes), comprises four individual short pieces as follows: Initiation, Mysterium, Trans, and One-2-3.
