British Artists' Films: Jayne Parker Film Poster


Collection of three short films by British artist and filmmaker Jayne Parker. 'Free Show' (1979) is split into three acts and looks at domestic events which have overtones of threat as well as the circus (cutting liver, ironing a fly, plucking eyebrows). 'RX Recipe' (1980) features a large eel in a bath, stuffed with vegetables and bandaged by a woman who then similarly binds her own leg. Finally, 'Cat' (1980) is the first in a series of roughcast but sharply-drawn animations featuring a woman, a cat and a fish.
