Douglas Gordon exposes certain time-based effects that are at the root of our sense of psychological security. This process is implemented by re-emphasizing key elements from carefully researched material, as well as using specially made video and film footage to restructure the mass of connections that influence an artists activity. What could be described as aestheticising the dynamic of trauma and reassurance has been combined with an ongoing desire to acknowledge his position as a self-conscious artist working within the specific power structures of the art world.
What we see in each picture are two images, one which Wall builds and the second which we invent in an instant, depending on what we saw on television that day, what article we read, what argument we participated in. As viewers, we find ourselves in a fragile place, a conflicted moment when stereotype and predisposition rush to finish sentences that never had beginnings.
Firmly rooted in time and in the world, her art explores a territory between keen wakefulness and (day)-dreams, where things of the real world and visions together penetrate consciousness, where perception stimulates dreams, and dreams sharpen perception. For almost three decades, ceaselessly circling themes and motifs in text, image, and music have been coupled in Laurie Andersons performances and installations with new material, forever evolving in a cosmology-in-flux, in the endless flow of a great work in progress.
