Got to see one of my favourite pieces of video art last week, as it’s currently on display at the whitechapel gallery, until June 17th.

"presented as unified and specific time spans which can be re-enacted, and on which it is possible to inlay other elements and transmit a different rhythm (fast forward), just like the videos which they often end up becoming. For it would seem quite normal, today, that a piece, an action or a performance should end up becoming documentation on videotape." 

Video…works like evidence. In art it signifies and demonstrates reality, a practice at times too dispersed and all over the place to be directly grasped.”
