Candice Breitz’s multimedia installations examine the language of popular culture as it is mediated through films, television and music, from cliff-hanger episodes of Dallas to sentimental pop videos. Using techniques of cutting, splicing and montage combined with a powerful sense of staging, Breitz creates compelling psychodramas into which the viewer is irresistibly drawn.
Re-Animations is Candice Breitz first solo exhibition in a UK public gallery. It includes recent work and a major new video installation, Becoming, made for the exhibition, along with a specially commissioned essay Candice Breitz: From A to B and Beyond by Jennifer Allen. Edited by Suzanne Cotter and Miria Swain. Preface by Andrew Nairne and Suzanne Cotter.
