It’s Just My Funny Way Of Dancing I-XIII

Fowler created 13 large-scale drawings that wrap around the space on one continuous sheet of paper, creating an all-encompassing, eternal flow of movement that surrounds the viewer like an uninterrupted over-sized film reel. The drawings originate from the frozen frames of a scene in the Marlene Dietrich movie, Destry Rides Again (1939). In the scene, Marlene is drawn into a surprisingly brutal cat-fight with another woman. Dietrich’s usually marble-like composure slips, her infamous poise and icy glamour replaced by a raucous cacophony of movement as she tosses herself with total abandon about the room, the pair of women becoming a tumbling mess of ripped skirt, pulled hair and laddered stocking.
