The film Chameleon takes as a starting point the exhibition Inverted House shown at Tate Modern. The exhibition dealt with the capitalist imperative, the constant state of expansion, and the notion of incessant building. The work evoked the feeling that production must take place; that production and re-appropriation are ever present. Different segments of the installation that made up Inverted House are here adapted and re-used as a part of a set in different spaces of the MOCA: the mural is repainted, now only black and white; and the tent is stretched as a flat form across the wall. The series of drawings and paintings shown as part of the exhibition serve as a score, which is re-enacted by five performers throughout the building, currently closed to the public. The performers, through a set of choreographed actions, translate states of instability, uncertainty and flux into the moving image. They endlessly try to make sense of the museum space and the objects – chairs and wooden boards – within it. Trapped within a constant flux, they move, they make, they reassemble, and unfold choreographies of their own interrelations.
