Teleny is a video which accompanies the works Socrates, Alcibiades, Medea and Xantippe. It is a partial adapation of Teleny, or the Reverse of the Medal, an anonymous pornographic novel published in 1893. Scenes of dialogue between the characters Briancourt, Camille and Teleny are staged, acted by an amateur cast, scripts in hand, against a set dressed with cheap flowers and green drapery. Through chroma keying these green spaces are removed, revealing scenes from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s Medea (1969) underneath.
