Ghosting: The Role of the Archive within Contemporary Artists' Film and Video by Eddie Chambers
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This work includes such artists as: The Atlas Group, Ansuman Biswas, Matthew Buckingham, Neil Cummings & Marysia Lewandoska, Yervant Gianikian & Angela Ricci Lucchi, Douglas Gordon, Johan Grimonprez, Susan Hiller, Patrick Keiller, Marcel Odenbach, Harold Offeh, Uriel Orlow & Ruth Maclennan, The Otolith Group, Erika Tan, Fiona Tan, and Mark Wallinger. The essays are by Eddie Chambers, Jane Connarty, Amna Malik, Uriel Orlow, Lucy Reynolds and Erika Tan. The experience of viewing projected archival film or antiquated video footage can have a seductive, even spellbinding effect on the viewer; its material and aesthetic qualities acting as a trigger to memories, evoking a sense of time and nostalgia, or conjuring fantasies of history. "Ghosting" examines the work of artists and filmmakers who have sought to develop work with these materials and their inherent qualities, to dislocate them from their original purpose/intention and to re-present them, revealing new readings, meanings or questions arising from the interaction between artist, material, and the context from which it is sourced.
