Bruce Nauman

Violent Incident - Man/Woman Segment (Parkett Deluxe Edition No. 10)

1986
VHS cassette
length 30:00:00
Signed and numbered "B Nauman 132/200" on a label affixed to the VHS cassette. This work is number 132 from an edition of 200.

        “My work comes out of being frustrated about the human condition. And about how people refuse to understand other people. And about how people can be cruel to each other. It’s not that I think I can change that, but it’s just such a frustrating part of human history”
Bruce Nauman
Parkett 10 1986

        Violent Incident is a looped video artwork made by Bruce Nauman that explores “persistent tension between humor and cruelty”. From 1986, Violent Incident was the first video made by Nauman after taking a hiatus from video work throughout the 1970s and early 1980s. It was also the first video in which Nauman utilized professional actors as the subjects, rather than himself; notably, he also used sound and color in Violent Incident. The premise of this work is similar to many of Nauman’s other videos – it forces viewers to endure an event – this time, the witnessing of a violent interaction, over and over again. The replacement of the gendered characters within the installation of the video loop functions to make the work all-inclusive for the viewership.

Petra Cortright

Petra Cortright (b. 1986, California) is one of the most interesting young video and multimedia artists working today. Known as a “post-Internet” artist, Cortright makes films, digital paintings, and more using the Internet and digital files as both her source material and part of her artwork’s end result. The core of her practice concerns itself with the utilization, creation, and distribution of digital files using widely available software. Cortright’s aesthetic is equally digital in essence and intensely layered as if made of more tactile media, although her digital paintings are printed on variety of materials including aluminum, linen, rag paper, and acrylic. “Working in a laborious but intuitive multi-faceted process, Cortright mines the Internet for images, patterns, marks, and color palettes to construct a new visual language.”A timely artist for contemporary times when so much consumption occurs digitally, Cortright is a true innovator in image-making.

“We are in a weird time, where everyone thinks everything has to make some kind of a commentary, and not to say that work isn’t important, but I am okay with making something that is just an escape.”*

Julia Stoschek: Collecting Time-based Art

The JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION (www.jsc.art)

"Time based media art is the medium of my generation”

Julia Stoscheck started her phenomenal collection of time-based media in 2003 after a particularly moving experience watching Douglas Gordon’s video Play Dead: Real Time (2003) at Gagosian Gallery in New York.

 

Inspired by the immediacy of this experience—a large-scale video installation in which an elephant “plays dead,” imitating its own death—Stoschek decided to focus specifically on time-based art and has since assembled one of the most extensive collections of these genres from the 1960s to today.
