Dance Number 22Bridge GameIntrospective. A Selection of Works from the late late 1950's to late 1980's

Montañez Ortiz, a pioneer of destruction art, pursues this concept also in his video works. Since 1985, he has been editing images digitally and disassembling scenes from old Hollywood films, especially in the Dance Series (1985–1993). In Bridge Game and Dance Number 22 he creates comic, circular plots and generates an optical and acoustic draw using stuttering rhythmic repetitions.
