Mark Lewis' work, COLD MORNING (2009), is an installation of four films projected at the Canadian pavilion during the 53rd Venice Biennale. Two of the films use the film technique of rear-projection. By separating reality into two realities, film looking at film, rear- projection became modern according to Mark Lewis. His films are made for the gallery space. Visitors in the exhibit space act as a third layer of reality, the reality of the viewer now.
The following films can be seen in the video:
NATHAN PHILLIPS SQUARE, A WINTER’S NIGHT SKATING, 2009
TD CENTRE, 54TH FLOOR, 2009
COLD MORNING, 2009
THE FIGHT, 2008
During the biennale, Mark Lewis' film Backstory (2009) was shown at Campo Santa Margherita.
