Between 1972 and 1981, Dujourie made almost 20 black-and-white analogue video works, now considered crucial contributions to the art of the 1970s and to female agency in art. In most of them, she herself appears as the ‘body in action’. Yet they are not short narrative films or documentations of performances but a format unto themselves: both painting and sculpture and neither, abstract spaces with concrete bodies that bring art history to new life.
