Centre Pompidou Video Art 1965 – 2005

Currently showing at ACMI so we got to see on the trip to Melb as well. I thought after my time in Paris (much of which was spent in the Pompidou media room trawling through their collection) it would seem like visiting old friends but I got to see HEAPS I hadn’t ever seen before.

Highlights were:
– Nam Jun Paik’s Moon is the Oldest TV from 1965. So perfectly simple and beautiful and elegantly installed.
-Bruce Nauman’s Going Around the Corner Piece from 1970. Simple again and clever, clever, clever and a little unnerving.
– and Pierre Huyghe’s The Third Memory (1999) in which the real bank robber portrayed by Al Pacino in the film Dog Day Afternoon is cut alogside events from the film describing and re-enacting how they played out in real-life.
