ouglas Gordon has always been interested in the double expressive register of verbal communication and the communication of moving images. Gordon has made a name for himself for video-installations of unusual dimensions and for his texts, printed on the walls of the exhibition spaces in the most varied of locations. Over the past ten years, he has held exhibitions in the world’s leading galleries and museums.
Gordon has always considered a place where the public relates to the work as artistic, as a space open to dialogue and social dynamics, a place in which to reflect on life.
The Mart exhibitions has been based on this initial idea and intends working actively on the exhibition spaces.
In the circular corridor liking the mezzanine with the second floor at the Mart. Gordon will present a work formed of all his verbal texts, recontextualised in a new version planned specially for this architectural space, and with the addition of a new text, also produced for the Mart.
