Hall 1.0

Art Unlimited Preview: Wednesday, June 13, 2005, 4 to 7 p.m.

The gallery is presenting two artists with video installations at Art Unlimited:

Jana Sterbak with “Waiting for High Water” and Johan Grimonprez with “Looking for Alfred”

Jana Sterbak, “Waiting for High Water”

(stand A4)

Waiting for High Water is the continuation of Jana Sterbak‘s work “From here to there” produced for the Canadian pavilion, Venice Biennial 2003. In Waiting for High Water the same dog from Sterbak’s previous video–Stanley–continues his image collecting, this time in the streets of Venice. The unique point of view combined with a composite screen and radical editing, situate the installation in the tradition of the early cinema (E.Muybridge, E-J. Marey) and the experimental film (J.Mekas, M.Snow).

Johan Grimonprez, “Looking for Alfred”

(stand B1)

Looking for Alfred documents Grimonprez‘s search for the perfect Hitchcock look-alike. Focusing on Hitchcock’s regular cameo appearances in each of his films, the work deploys a number of Hitchcock look-alikes to conjure up an unexpected narrative from Hitchcock’s 50-year history of walk-on parts. Shot amongst the atmospheric interiors of the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels, this labyrinthine trail of look-alikes and doubles combines Hitchcock’s flair for cinematic suspense with a quiet and beguiling surrealism reminiscent of another great modern master, Rene Magritte.
