An in-depth document of Marcia Farquhar’s collaborative 12 Shooters project (2007). The cloth bound book includes full-colour film stills, production stills, preparatory drawings and contextual documentation.
“I first watched Marcia Farquhar’s 12 Shooters in a Chelsea Hotel room one night in March 2008. The Chelsea’s shabby lobby, lined floor to ceiling with darkening paintings accepted years ago as rent, is only a cipher of all that has been made and shown there. “
12 Shooters incorporates 13 short-films by 13 different filmmakers, each a reconfiguration of a once-live work from the last 12 years of Marcia Farquhar’s practice. In each case, Farquhar and the respective ‘shooter’ together chose which work was to be revisited, and in what manner. Farquhar then dedicated her performance to their camera on an appointed day, thereafter handing all editorial control to the filmmaker.
