  • David Hall: Video Art Pioneer

    The Video Art pioneer David Hall (1937–2014) who passed away in October 2014 was a crucial figure in British art of the post war period. His work across sculpture, film, video and installations pioneered new areas of practice and played a crucial role in the first chapter of video art in the UK. An impassioned teacher and influential advocate for video art, Hall was the co-organiser of The Video Show 1975, the first major international show of artists’ video in the UK. He was also co-founder of London Video Arts (now LUX) and a member of the Artist Placement Group and founded the first time based media course at Maidstone College of Art in 1972. His works has been exhibited and collected internationally. Hall was as adept working on his Television Interruptions for broadcasters from the BBC to MTV as he was presenting his work at the world’s leading museums and exhibitions, from Documenta to the Centre Pompidou.

  • Maxime Rossi, Real Estate Astrology

    Pursuing Max Ernst’s marks in Sedona, the French artist Maxime Rossi explores the particular landscape of Arizona and the bewitching appearance of its extensive and stony desert which has profoundly marked the spirit and the work of the surrealist artist in exile. By looking for a Hopi ruin once inhabited by Ernst, Maxime Rossi offers with Real Estate Astrology (2015) a hallucinatory journey tinted by a surrealistic survey in which astrology and mysticism seems to fill the paradoxes of history. Invited by the film department of the Centre Pompidou to design this screening, the artist has imagined from the horoscope chart of this event a partition on which the evidences he gathered during its ghost hunt in Capricorn Hill will be presented.
