A film by Kota Ezawa
Commissioned by Animate Projects and PEER. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
Kota Ezawa re-presents moments from the media, popular culture, and the history of photography in animated videos, slide projections, lightboxes, and prints. For Out of Site, he has recreated portions of Hans Namuth’s 1950 film Jackson Pollock 51, which shows the artist painting on a pane of glass installed between Pollock and the camera lens. This animation draws our attention to the specificity of the PEER windows as a barrier between the inner and outer space of the gallery and the street.
