Sue de Beer – This poem is me and it’s nothing but words about you I hope you like it

<p>Khary Simon interviews Sue de Beer on her 4 films for Daata Editions</p><p></p> <p> <em> Are the films intended to be presented in a specific order?</em></p> <p> No. They are separate but connected. </p> <p> I do watch them in the order of 1, 2, 3, 4. I cut them in the order of 1, 2, 3, 4. The first two naturally connect, and the last two naturally connect. So do 1 and 4. So do 2 and 3.</p><p></p> <p> <em> Is beauty fragile and or dangerous?</em></p> <p> Yes. Fragile. </p> <p><em><br></em></p><p> <em> What about terror can be erotic or beautiful?</em></p> <p> Everything. </p> <p><em><br></em></p><p> <em> Do you cherish objects of girlhood or wish we did?</em></p> <p> Yes.</p> <p><em><br></em></p><p> <em> What is the origin of titles 1 and 2?</em></p> <p> This poem is me <br> and it’s nothing but <br> words about you<br> I hope you like it</p> <p> It’s from a Dennis Cooper poem – one that he contributed to my first catalogue. I think it’s beautiful. Shifts around the watcher and the watched.</p> <p>Khary Simon is a creative director and publisher based in New York</p>
