Lunchtime Tour: Jake Moore, artist

Description

“Between Two Waves”

Situating Hito Steyerl, Liquidity Inc., 2014 and Nicolas Baier’s Eternity, 2014 as the two waves posited here as post internet art and the new materiality, I will look to End of Empire, by Simone Jones and Lance Winn as the “between” wherein the remediation of iconic imagery is returned to the cinematic tradition but made fully sculptural in its occupation of space. These works are standouts within the complex field of the exhibition, and point to both current movements in contemporary practices and their historical underpinnings simultaneously.  Looking – backwards and forwards – en même temps.
