Harrell Fletcher – Blot Out The Sun (2002, 46.7MB, 5:32)

Harrell Fletcher’s 2002 unconventional remake of Ulysses.
A garage in central Portland, Oregon is the setting for this
conceptual re-working of James Joyce’s Ulysses. The garage
owner, Jay, mechanics and neighborhood denizens serve as
narrators, reading lines from the novel that focus on death,
love, social inequality and the relationship between individuals
and the universe.

A five minute clip from the 22-minute piece featured in the
2004 Whitney Biennial
