Based on performances by the notorious lesbian art collective Kiss
& Tell, this video captures digitally processed moments hidden for
over a decade, recalling 1990s queer and art-world attitudes
towards sexuality and censorship. The provocative styles of
Persimmon Blackbridge, Lizard Jones and Susan Stewart
come together in simple lust stories and in letters to their mothers.
Lorna Boschman, who directed two previous videos about Kiss & Tell,
represents the groups approach to performance through a digital mix
within the frame, shaping geographically separate shows and
multiplying images together to reveal one of Canadas
original queer art collectives.
