Amar Kanwar’s “Such A Morning”

MARIAN GOODMAN GALLERY, London

Amar Kanwar, Such A Morning, 2017.
by

Colin Perry

Amar Kanwar’s latest video installation delves into more mystical concerns than the documentary format, for which he is known, might seem capable of containing. The eponymous single-channel video at the heart of “Such A Morning” (all works 2017) is an exquisitely installed piece of visionary slow cinema—a work whose mode... continue reading
Dara Birnbaum’s “Psalm 29(30)”

MARIAN GOODMAN GALLERY, New York

Dara Birnbaum, Psalm 29(30), 2016.
by

Leo Goldsmith

Six years in, Syria’s Civil War has been the subject of a vast quantity of information—in the form of user-generated video, reportage, news analysis, social media updates—and yet we seem no nearer to an adequate means of representing it. Representation and resolution are often intertwined: the clarity of a representation,... continue reading
Tacita Dean’s “JG”

MARIAN GOODMAN GALLERY, Paris

Tacita Dean, JG, 2013.
by

Mara Hoberman

In the late 1990s, equipped with directions furnished by the Utah Arts Council, Tacita Dean traveled to the Great Salt Lake in search of Robert Smithson’s Land art masterpiece Spiral Jetty (1970).

Danh Vo’s “Mother Tongue”

The title comes from a small calligraphic drawing by the artist’s father, Phung Vo, who, while not knowing the language he... continue reading
Pierre Huyghe at Marian Goodman, Paris

Pierre Huyghe at Marian Goodman, Paris
by

Filipa Ramos

The Host and the Cloud, the most recent work of Pierre Huyghe, is an overwhelming mise-en-scène of the contemporary imaginary. The action (of the film) takes place in the former building of the Musée National des Arts et Traditions Populaires. Built by Jean Dubuisson-a disciple of Le Corbusier-and located in the Bois de Boulogne, it was an innovative experiment, conceived to offer a synthetic vision of the traditional French society and constituted as a... continue reading
Marcel Broodthaers in New York

Marcel Broodthaers in New York
by

Media Farzin

There is an ambiguous theatricality to the recent Marcel Broodthaers exhibition at Marian Goodman. The gallery has reconstructed the 1972 Section Cinéma in its entirety (three carefully installed rooms of films and objects), alongside the work's precursor, the 1970 Cinéma Modèle. The theatrical effect is a combination of intention and history: the everydayness of objects, the deliberate archaic quality of the technology, their inevitable ageing, and the... continue reading
