Those New York ’Nineties
Performances by Rohan Quine

(deathless prose)

 

This footage that I’ve called Those New York ’Nineties (residing in the top-menu called “Film & TV Acting”) is just for fun—a frisky little soufflé laying no claim to profundity, presented for moral instruction. My presence in all these 115 items of footage probably adds up to something like one full B-movie’s worth of performance in total. A general introduction and an insufficient apology for Those New York ’Nineties as a whole is here. (See also my pages at the Internet Movie Database and the Oz TV Wiki.)

Rohan Quine - New York - Hallucination DowntownHallucination Downtown. A compilation of heroically silly and too-gay-to-function snippets from this smorgasbord of video vol-au-vents and shrimp-puffs called Those New York ’Nineties, selected from the “Performances” and “Reality” categories. This compilation was professionally edited by Oliver Wicki at the time (on then-prevalent three-quarter-inch U-matic tape), as part of my good friend Wayne’s project “Metaculture”, which explored various urban subcultures.

Rohan Quine - New York - Performance 1Performance 1. Apologies for this performance of mine; but I can offer something of an excuse, which is that it’s the only one of these pieces where I was playing a role within something larger, rather than just reading or performing a text as myself. This role was as a figure delivering some version of seduction. I’m not sure whom I could have seduced with this in reality, but that was the specific instruction given to me and to a few others too, by a talented artist named Jean-Luc Vilmouth, who filmed us all. He then used our various depictions of seduction to make an interesting and successful video installation art piece called Bar Séduire at the Guggenheim Museum Soho. My text from “Venus” in the published collection Hallucinations; shot by Jean-Luc Vilmouth. (3’41”)
