Filmmaker Andrew Kötting, in an ironic response, re-vists his film Klipperty Klöpp, made 33 years ago, of a artist repeatedly and energetically running around a field in Gloucestershire pretending to be a horse. He describes the work as a 'post-punk piece of pagan happening – part Benny Hill part Joseph Beuys'. In the re-make, Klipperty Klöpp2, Kötting's protagonist this time is a woman moving very slowly within the landscape. Married up shot for shot with the original super 8 footage, Kotting changing the 'he' to 'she' likes to see the work as an artefact dug up and represented in the gallery space.
