Abstract:

Partindo de Slow Angle Walk (Beckett Walk) [Caminhada angular lenta (Caminhada Beckett)], de 1968, um dos primeiros vídeos filmados por Bruce Nauman em seu ateliê, este ensaio busca examinar possíveis convergências formais e temáticas entre alguns de seus trabalhos e a obra de Samuel Beckett, especialmente o emprego da repeti o, da redu o e da conten o como procedimentos fundamentais para se atingir uma espécie de satura o da experiência que conduz ao esgotamento por meio da recombina o exaustiva de poucos elementos.
