This music and video is dedicated to Mat Collishaw and his powerful, elegant, and melodic works of art.
Footage from my recent visit to Galerie Rudolfinum, Praha | Artist & Exhibition, Mat Collishaw | Standing Water
"Mat Collishaw’s (1966) exhibition in Prague, aptly named Standing Water, starts with an almost prophetic and yet programmatic photograph, the artist’s self-portrait Narcissus (1990). The young artist lies in the mud on a London street and, with a kind of ironic exaggeration, contemplates the reflection of his face in a dirty puddle. High and low, ephemerally gracious in all that dirty mud, hopeless timelessness of decay and a reference to an ancient myth. You could almost say that this set the course for Collishaw’s career as an artist, which nowadays amounts to a long journey."
