Positivity: a perffilm is a reiteration of Negativity: a ten minute performance film edited from three ten-minute improvisations. The content of the performances is derived from a short clip Fuata took on his smartphone of a gardener killing a castor oil plant in his backyard. In the video the gardener works to clear the ground of plant matter, until the plant itself is stripped bare. From behind the camera Fuata calls, “Arrgghh, I’m naked.” His off-camera laughter is met with a non-response from the gardener so that he adds, “That was the plant speaking.” The gardener shakes the naked plant and exits the frame. In Negativity, Fuata uses a seemingly mundane scene to allow the plant’s subjectivity to emerge from a place of human negation. In Positivity, Fuata’s aforementioned reappropriating of human negation takes new form – a double take – as if it imply the only way to grow is up. It doesn’t end with a ghost; it ends with a ghost carrying a video camera.
