Neighbours (1952)

Currently at the Contemporary Art Gallery is an exhibition by Jeremy Shaw entitled Medium-Based Time. Among the works in this show is Variation FQ (2011-13), a 16mm film that fuses a performance by transgender "Vogue" dancer Leiomy Maldonado with a step-and-repeat animation technique developed by Canadian filmmaker Norman McLaren in his 1968 ballet film Pas de deux.

Above is McLaren's best-known film, Neighbours (1952)
