Please please go see this. I went last Wednesday to the opening at the Parasol Unit, really just to meet a friend (have a natter) but I was blown away by this exhibition. Only for the sun on the canal, I would have stayed all evening - enjoying the plush carpets and slow perspectives. I will definitely return for a double dose with at least an hour up my sleeve and this no doubt will be insufficient. You may have heard of Claerbout, I had, didn't know why, do now.
David Claerbout: The Algiers' Sections of a Happy Moment, 2008
"As one of the most innovative and acclaimed artists of his generation working with moving image, Claerbout has created a striking body of works within which the media of film and photography appear to co-exist.
Claerbout's works often depict some everyday activity or event that seems to be the subject of the work, but as time passes we as viewers face a dilemma in how to decipher the artist’s intention. The works not only alter our established understanding of time and the narrative process but also our notions of reality, illusion, and the relationship between them." Parasol Unit
