YOU TALKING TO ME, (2021), 4.5 minutes, color, sound, video
Twin channels in the zoom era, as sound is temporal but never spatial. Slowly overlapping and interrupting Douglas Gordon while Alex Reiger fills the gap of hack unemployment with a night of night-watching that veers through and embodies the early era of video art. “This is how I look when I say this is how I look when I talk”: casual, flirtatious and speculative, inverting Travis Bickle’s aggressive mirror moment.
